    Another person mentioned something interesting and it worked, although
    temporarily. Windows Update works great outside of ISA, no proxy, with ISA,
    it is a serious flaw by MS.

    Close IE first.

    Delete two directories from the C:\WINDOWS\SOFTWAREDISTRIBUTION folder

    1. WebSetup
    2. WuRedir

    Try Windows Update and it will work, should work.

    You have to delete those two folders again before running Windows Update
    again. A workaround but not a permanent solution.

    Worked for me too. But does anyone have a solution and not a workaround? Is
    there a configuration or setting on the ISA end? Patches/Fixes?
