    Same prob...kinda

    "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"

    Thats the shit I get from when I go to
    and it's pissing me off, I'm the admin! it's my computer! but it's doing this to me! :( why???? can anyone tell me that??? I don't have any of those setting set high, someone from support once told me there was a prob if you upgraded from Me to XP which I did.
    any ideas?

    Contrary to marduk i didnt make an upgrade i did a clean install
  5. You could try a work around that I use when I have problems with windows update, used the windows update link in the Help and Support section, that used to work till I figured out what was funky elsewhere, don't know why this works but it did

    I used to have trouble accessing Windows Update when I had Windows 98, probably because of IE 5.5. I am now using Windows 2002 XP Professional Corporate 5.01.2600 and I have no problems with Windows Update. Here's what I suggest; Turn all security options to low or off and allow everything in Tools--> Internet Options--> Security from IE. That solved my problem. Only once did I ever get the message that I was unable to access Windows Update because it was restricted by the admin but I don't remember if I did anything to fix that.

    Have you disabled any services or such, update depends on a few services and if they are disabled it will not run?

    I am not sure, but i had this problem before...

    Try to go to Internet options and UNcheck the Automatic detecting server or whatever (don't remember exactly) in the LAN setting.
