Can't update guide

I can not get the guide to update. I've disabled my virus program thinking that was stopping it but it still won't download. I used restore one time and that worked but after I did a windows update the guide stopped working.

Settings>General>Windows Media Center Setup>Run Setup Again

rerun MC Setup and give the Guide long enough to update which may take some time on a slower connection...in doing so it is important to make sure you choose the correct region and location, and follow all prompts related to the Guide and Updates for WMC.

Well I rerun setup and made sure I had the right zip code etc. I'm running on cable and still can not get it to update the guide. I do get a message of " right click on Windows Media Center systen tray Icon and look at the download history"

I don't know how to do a screen shot. Also not sure what its to show.

It tells me to right click on system tray icon and veiw the update log. I can't find that either. I guess I don't know what the system tray is. I feel pretty dumb this morning. Bob

I reinstalled Win7 and was able to update the download guide for a couple of weeks and now its stopped downloading. I'm guessing its something to do with updateing win 7. I hate to keep reinstalling win7.

When I did a restore to an earlier setting it worked but now I think after the computer updated its won't download the guide. I did not mean to post in different threads.
