    Hmm...the error code doesn't reveal much.
    Do you have a firewall installed? Does it work if the firewall is temporarily disabled or shutdown?

    ok question #1 .. did you reboot after it installed v5 crap? I can't remember if I had that same error code but I did have an error and a reboot fixed it. If not click that "windows update troubleshooter" link and look for that error code in the top right. ;)

    Yeah good M$ and there error codes. The one I got wasn't listed either but reboot fixed it so I'm not sure what else to do for ya. :( I did notice there was another v5 update last night so maybe try it again?

    I had the same problem and fixed it like this:

    Get Hijack This, remove Windows Update from your registry wherever you find it in the scan. Go back to Windows Update, and it will load a fresh copy for you. Hope this works for you like it did for me!

    Did you have SP2 installed before, then uninstalled it? That's how I ended up with V5.

    V5 loaded for me that way. Pretty neat looking compared to the bland old v4.

    This v5 is doing my head in..I have three PC's - on two it works fine but on my main machine it doesn't!! Did a complete format/re-install and SP2 upgrade and it worked initially then it worked intermittently and now all I get is the opening screen say "Checking for latest software....." and nothing else happens and most options in left pane greyed out. What's happening???

    Think I may have solved the above....it looks like it may be a programme called ReGet which is a file download manager....have uninstalled this and Update seems ok again. If anyone else has this programme would be interested to know if you are also having a problem to confirm my theory.
