Can you give us a little bit more specific info? What error messages are you getting? Are you
running a firewall? If so, try disabling the firewall...I know SCS in particular has had issues
with Windows Update.

I'd like to think I'm somewhat computer savvy, but this one escapes me...running XP, trying to
run Windows Update. All but one or two updates will fail. I've done some research that suggested
a necessary service may not have started, but this is not the case. When looking at the user
account, they are designated as Administrator. However, Windows Update says it won't install the
updates unless it's accomplished by an administrator. Any suggestions?
