  4. You may need to add the following URLs to your proxy exception list (if
    using proxy)

    Tools > Internet Options

    Connections > LAN Settings > Advanced

    Add the following to the Exception sites

    With wildcards:



    Verify the following sites are Trusted Sites:

    Tools > Internet Options

    Security > Select "Trusted Sites" > Click Sites

    Add the following.

    Specific URLs:

    Suggestion 2:

    This error can occur if you have some of the Windows Update site IP
    addresses hard coded in your HOSTS file. Entries for the Windows Update site
    in the HOSTS file are not recommended as the IP's for the site change often.
    Check your HOSTS file (it may also be called HOSTS.SAM) and make sure you
    don't have any static IP entries for the Windows Update web site listed in
    the file. Applications like web accelerators, TweakMasterDNS, etc. can add
    static IP entries for the Windows Update site into your HOSTS file without
    your knowledge.

    Check your HOSTS file. If you are running WinNT/2K/XP, it will be in this


    You can use Notepad to open the HOSTS file.
