Well, what you're describing, it doesn't even look like you can get to the page.  If there was a problem that you could fix, you should be at least able to access the page, then if there was a problem, there would be an error code.  Do you have another computer on the same network (using the same DNS server, and internet access connection) that you could try?  Or, at the very least, use a different web browser on that machine to see if you can even access http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ ?

OKAY, after having a brain fart i realized one thing , make that two no three, First i can be too hasty, Second forgot to thank all those who replied to my peril, thank you all third, i forgot all about Dial-a-Fix that it could repaired and reset the windows update. UTE OWE !, IT'S A SHAME I REALIZED THIS AFTER I TOOK A SLEDGEHAMMER TO MY PC no just kidding it worked and windows update all fixed.

Because there's typically a very heavy load on their servers on Patch Tuesday, I usually wait till a day or two later to check for updates.

Reformatting makes no sense. Simply wait a day or two and try updates again. :)
