    How about a screenshot. Have you recently reinstalled Internet Explorer? Is this at work or at home? The reason I ask is because I do the creation of the IEAK packages here where I work, and when I created the last one I disabled users from using Windows Update. We use SMS to automatically distribute any hotfixes so the need at the client level was unneeded.

    try bigfix

    http://www.bigfix.com/website/

    IMHO much better than using Win Update

    all the updates are downloaded & stored to the bigfix directory before installation
    C:\Program Files\BigFix\__Data\Fixlet Central\__Local\Get

    unlike Win Update were you have to use the catologue to save downloaded updates

    when its working that is

    :p :cool: :rolleyes:

    It's been flakey lately (i.e., reporting driver updates for hardware that is not even installed on the system)...:confused:
