Hi,

Starting with this months round of updates, my PC can't detect updates
any more.

The following is listed in the %windir%\windowsupdate.log file

"1220 55c DnldMgr * Update is not allowed to download due to
regulation."

It started happening after the following update was installed

Event Type: Information
Event Source: Windows Update Agent
Event Category: Installation
Event ID: 19
Date: 11/10/2005
Time: 20:35:42
User: N/A
Computer: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Description:
Installation Successful: Windows successfully installed the following
update: Automatic Updates

Any ideas what this means?

Super B man

Demand on the servers exceeds capacity. Try again later (off-peak seems to
be between 11PM and 7 AM PDT).
