Thanks for responding. The service pack was 2.
Here is what I did that was suggested to me.
Uninstalled >Net 1.1 Had to use Revo uninstaller to get it done.
Used .NET Framework Cleanup Tool
Reinstalled Net 1.1 and the service pack 1 for it as well.
Once I did this, the updates started coming. I now have service pack 3. I'm letting it do updates now until its up to date. Seems I'm out of the rut. Thank you for your help. I learned a lot.
