    I have several questions really...

    I fresh install my PC and go to updates site, and v5 client gets installed.
    Now when it tries to scan for updates, it just keeps going forever. I can't
    close the IE window either. What causes this?

    Also, If I then set this PC to use my SUS server for updates, the client
    claims to have nothing to download. But then when I point MBSA at the same
    machine (telling MBSA to compair to my SUS server approved items list) it
    tells me there are 19 to download. Can I trust SUS and MBSA?
    I have been trying various solutions I have found on the 'net but with no
    luck. Has anyone actually got Auto Updates to work reliably? I am losing
    all confidence in these products really quickly

    Dear Steve: I had a much similar problem, and resolved it here, with a
    reply to a post suggesting to reset the .dll (dynamic link library) files.
    The suggestion was to go to start, then run, and type in the following,
    pressing "ok" after each entry: net.exe stop wuauserv regsvr32 /s
    wuapi.dll regsvr32 /s wups.dll regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll regsvr32 /s msxml3.dll net.exe start
    wuauserv This did the trick for me, my v5 update screen stopped
    freezing after this fix. I hope it helps.
