    I noticed that some people are having problems with Windows Update.
    Here are two things you can do that may solve your problem:

    1) Delete Windows Update controls and reinstall them:
    Information on how to do this is located here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q319585
    AND/OR
    2) Add Windows Update to your Local Intranet Zone
    To do this, just follow these steps:
    a) Open IE, click Tools>Internet Options
    b) In the Security tab, click the Local Intranet icon and click the "Sites" button
    c) Click the Advanced... button in the dialog box that opens up
    d) Type in this website and click Add:
    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
    e) Click OK and restart the browser.

    Try one or both of these and see if Windows Update works for you. Post your responses here.
