I believe that I have already posted a previously similar post. However I am still having the same issue. I am unable to activate my ICS firewall that came with SP2. And since my ICS went down, I am now unable to connect to the windows up date site. I get an error when I try to click the express download for the updates. I am however able to update manually, but I would like the simplicity of clicking a button and getting my updates back. Any solutions or comments from others having the same problem? Microshaft told me that it has to be on my end, however everything is running great here. For an assistant from Microshaft to help it will cost me 75.00 dollars an hour. And I simply dont think that they know what it going on.
