    Yesterday I downloaded the most recent updates at another computer and
    installed them and then windowsupdate worked, but today I started getting
    this error again:

    This is happening on my work machine but not at home. I downloaded updates
    at home and then manually installed them at work up to most recent as of
    yesterday and then WU worked at my work machine. But today, I get the error

    I've tried the Windows update Trouble shooter for this error number and none
    of those things helps.

    Last night, win update didn't work. I left the computer on, went home, came
    in this morning, and it worked -- what the . .. ?

    Oh yes.

    At this point, I'm guessing that it must a network firewall.
    It would just figure that geniuses that run the network that decided they
    could protect the network if they didn't allow Window updates.
    If that's the case, the fact that occassionally the firewall is down and the
    win updates does work doesn't say a lot for the firewall protection.
