Is your computer/network set to block certain sites? Perhaps somethings interfering with how the website would tell your computer that there are no new updates.

my computer has no limitations on site usage. i even gave the startzune.exe special permissions through the firewall. any advice?

EDIT: ok, took the program files off of a friends computer and installed it that way. now i cant log in. help?

install 4.0
here's what i followed to get it working and it bypassed all of those problems like checking for updates or preparing pc.
