The above links are direct download links and in case any of them doesnt work, I would recommend you to visit the following sites for the download link.
Microsoft Visual Developer Center for
downloading the Visual Studio SP1 and related stuff.
ASP.NET AJAX Home Page for ASP.NET AJAX downloads.

All the above pages have links for respective downlods for the Express Editions also.
