    If you are running NIS or ZoneAlarm to enable V5Update requires these to be
    disabled and the MS Firewall enabled, this is necessary until the 2 rival
    companies produce fixes/patches to interact with XP-Sp2

  3. thanks for your answer!
    i don't use another personal firewall.
    i'm behind a isa server 2000 with firewallclient on my computer.
    do i have to change something on the isa server settings?
    i've tried to use a dialup connection on the local machine and than the
    windowsupdate works fine, so i guess it must have something to do with isa
    thanks again!

  4. I am seeing exactly the same symptom, also after upgrading to Windows XP SP2
    and Windows Update 5 on a machine running the ISA Server 2000 Firewall Client.

    Hi, by disabling the ISA Server 2000 Firewall Client on your local machine
    and manually configuring your IE LAN Settings for your ISA 2000 Server Proxy
    Settings, then the V5 windows update works. There seems to be a problem with
    the Firewall Client etc.

    I am getting the same error behind ISA Server 2000 Proxy Server. I disabled
    the client and still get the error but I can still browse so my IE settings
    work. Updated Proxy server to SP2 and updated the client after and still get
    the same error. Any other suggestions?

    I now have a few computers that work correctly with v5 and others that still
    don't. I am going to look into that further.

    I did find a work around per machine. Run windows update, click
    administrator options and click windows update catalog
    and then click windows update on the left and you get v4
    which will work through ISA 2000.

    I posted on the ISA Server, Configuration newsgroup and sent some info to a
    guy that updates isaserver.org so hopefully a fix is in the works.

    I also have been getting the above error, with SBS 2003 and Windows XP not
    SP2 yet. and some with XP SP2. I think it might have to do with profiles or
    settings. I get the error logging in as myself, but when I signon using
    domain admin - it works fine. It still does not work under my profiles I am
    tempted to delete it, but was wonder if anyone else noticed?
