Default Automatic Update Problems

My computer at work was affected with Ad-Ware and after 2 months my pop up situation went way, thanks to norton and spysweeper. Well anyways I orderd SP2 and got it on CD. I installed it on my PC. Ever since the adware situation my computer hasnt been getting the automatic updates. The icon at the bottom of the computer would show but it never downloads, its always at 0%. If I go to the automatic update site, it tries to download but it always says that it fails!! I have no idea how to fix this problem and I do not want to do a clean install, any suggestions out there on how to fix this?
