Force a new download for Software Updater - Snow Leopard

I'm trying to restart the download of the Max OS X Combined Download file. The problem is that I've downloaded part of the program and my Internet has cut out at 30% done. Now, every time I reconnect and launch the Updater, I get the option to try and install the update. When I try to update, it resumes the download at 30%, completes from there, and then verifies the file (either for authenticity or for continuity, not sure which). So, my attemps to resolve the issue always fail.

I try to do the same thing again but every time Software Update resumes at the same spot, completes the download, checks the file, and fails. Can anyone give me a hand, either forcing the start of a whole new download of the complete file or finding the appropriate download directory and deleting only the files relevant to the specified update?

That was a bug in the Apple Software Update. I have tried to replicate the problem but it said "Can't download the update". I have fixed it by reconnecting to the Internet. The process has started from where it left. So, uncheck the download you want to apply to your Mac, then use all the other system updates. Reboot the mac and try downloading again. It should work.
