Before downloading, first make sure that hidden files and folders are visible on your computer.   You can do this by going into the Control Panel and opening up Folder Options (this is under "Appearance and Themes" if using category view in Windows XP).  Go to the "View" tab.  In the "Advanced Settings" section, scroll to the "Hidden files and folders" option and make sure "Show hidden files and folders" is selected.

The folder to download these updates to will vary depending on what version and language of Windows you are running.  To find the folder to download the updates to, I'd recommend searching your computer for "UPDATE04.TXT" or "04A*.its."  On Windows 2000/XP, it should point you to a folder similar to: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\ Application Data\Microsoft\Encarta Reference Library\L04AXLRD\Updates.  On Windows 98/Me it will be similar to: C:\Windows\ All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Encarta Reference Library\L04AXLRD\Updates.

Please note that the following updates are for the English version of Encarta 2004 only.  If your version of Encarta is a different language, scroll to the top of this page and select the link for your language.
