    I would guess that all of these new 'Vulnerabilities' are already addressed in SP2 RC2 then, because of all the patches that have come out in the 2 months I have had the RC2 version, I have never had a patch come up for it.

    Anyone else having trouble installing these updates? When I go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com, it scans my computer right, and I select the updates, they download, but when it goes to install them it freezes, and then eventually says Install failed.

    I even tried each individually, but still freezes...

    I had that happen to me once. I simply turned off my firewall, and every thing was fine. (Of course, I turned it on again, after updating.)

    Thanks moxnix, that was the problem. I turned off my firewall too, and it installed just fine.

    Question Isn't that dodgy?

    I mean Microsoft supply a firewall with their latest OS, all be it a not too good one, so why should switching your firewall off make a difference? I certainly wouldn't want to do that!

    I'd be interested to know what firewalls needed switching off and if there were any messages. Is there any telling entry in your firewall logs?

    It could simply be a permission setting. The thing to do would be to check firewall logs to see if the firewall blocked Update, and if so, add Update to the permitted list. There are other various settings that could have an affect too (as my last couple of weeks with Sygate and Kerio have so well demonstrated -- see my thread on that).
