Do you mean you were unable to download "Fix It" tool from the above link? Or did you try the tool and still cannot update Windows?

Hello Again, after doing several hours of research i found out that i have Malware on my PC . after doing a System restore to a week ago , i was now able to access Microsoft web site, but i was still having some issues like, unable to move from tab to tab on my browser ( Firefox ), and when i click on a folder to open it, there was a significant delay in opening the folder.

i then ran malaware bytes which found the PUP.Optional.Tarma.A. plus some other malware.

The question is now is how do i remove all the instances ? any suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks in advance
