    I have a Windows 2003 server with SP1 on it. Everytime I try to run Windows
    Update I am able to download the update, however during the installation it
    fails. The error code under my Windows Update installation history is
    0x80244018. I've done lots to try to resolve this, however I don't have my
    notes with me at this moment. Is there any suggestions that you can offer
    until I can post what I've already done?

  2. 80244018 = "Http status 403 - request forbidden"

    Maybe you have problems with web proxies or corporate gateways/firewalls.

    I would agree with that in most cases, however they have more than one
    Windows server in their environment and the others are able to use Windows
    Updates without any issues. As far as I know this is the only Windows 2003
    server in their network. The others are Windows 2000 server standard. Is
    there anything different that Windows 2003 server would look for when doing a
    Windows Update that a Windows 2000 server may not do. I'm just trying to see
    if I can look at something in the firewall that may be causing the issue.
    There are no web proxies configured in the IE setup.

  4. Also, open a command prompt window, type the command


    and check that the output proxy configuration is as intended for this site.
