    error message;

    "Access Denied

    Network policy settings prevent you from using Windows Update to download and install updates on your computer.

    If you believe you have received this message in error, please check with your system administrator."

    How to solve this problem?

    If you are part of an AD environment (in a Domain), then this is a Group Policy setting and you won't be able to do anything about it, if you are a stand alone system (in a workgroup) then in Win XP got to start\run\gpedit.msc and search for Windows Update, I believe it's located under User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows components.
