    Is this Windows 7 RTM, a beta release, or the RC ?

    hey, had the same problem as you. ironically windows firewall was the cause.
    yes microsofts own firewall was blocking their updates. hope this works for
    you :)

    This is my first post.

    The information provided by mike, a guest, to hesham rajmi solved th
    problem for me as well. The problem was 5 days old with multiple tria
    actions including Microsoft's recommended, that had no effect.

    I am using newly installed Win764U.

    I turned off the Windows firewall and downloads then started quickly.
    You guys have helped me, thanks so much !

    Thanks for all the prior tips, they did me no good, BUT, after turning
    firewall OFF (to no avail) I began eliminating hardware, starting with the
    Belkin 54g Wireless router(only), simply cable connected directly to modem
    and, "Hey Presto" (update) download action!
    Stopped the "update" (pulled the LAN cable) to allow Windows 7 Firewall to
    be re-activated (important!), and then reconnected the LAN cable and
    re-initiated the "Update", sweet, no change due to the Firewall in my case
    (using "Recommended Settings").
    Interesting to note that Windows Firewall does not mention "Windows Update"
    in it's "list" so I'm perplexed at previous mentions of firewall involvement
    (which didn't offer any detail about settings etc - helpful for us
    I'm now going to restart after "update" (which for some reason managed only
    9 of 18 updates successfully, i.e. 9 failures), so after restart I'll
    re-initiate "Update" but this time I'll re-introduce the Belkin 54g router
    via cable (not wireless) to see if that works (thus pinpointing area of
    suspected conflict/intereference within the router/AP).
