Microsoft Update refuses to co-opperate.

    Greetings All,

    I have been having a little trouble with the microsoft update service.
    Whenever I navigate to the microsoft update (v6) website I am greeted with a
    message informing me that the site cannot continue as one of three windows
    services vital to microsoft update (v6) is not running. This is where the
    problem lays; all three of these services (Automatic Updates, BITS and The
    Event Log) are in fact running and are set to automatic as is required.

    Also I have noticed that automatic updates seems to be acting rather irratic
    as well. While the service does seem to download updates and indeed offers me
    the opportunity to install it seems to disapper part way through the
    installation. The icon will just vanish with out a trace, no prompt to
    restart the computer, no error message, nothing.

    It might be worth noting that I had been having a few problems with COM+
    that required me to repair/reinstall the COM+ cataloque. However, to my
    knowledge this issue was resolved as I followed online instructions to repair
    the COM+ and an error associated with the apparent corruption of the
    catalogue is now resolved.

    Hints: if necessary there is a verbose option you could activate.
    Also you could Run... ProcMon to supplement the log's messages
    with the intervening registry and file accesses.

    Good luck
