    Hi everybody.
    I'm running winxp pro sp2 for several years without this problem, but
    now is a week or two that i have this "bug"(?).

    I have setting the auto update to "Notify me but don't automatically
    download or install them" and now i have the icon on system tray. I
    click on the icon and appears the update window, but there are no
    update to install or download! The window is simply empty.
    I have check on the windows update site and all the critical update
    have been installed.

    So i have tried to change the auto update to "Download updates for me,
    but let me choose when to install them" and the icon disappears, but
    if i change it again as written above the icon appears again with the
    same problem.

    How can i solve that?
    Why this happens?

    I have solved deleting the softtware distribution folder in c:\windows
    after stopping the update service.
    Then running the service again. At this point windows update tell me
    that there are some update, install them and everything works now!
