    Hello team,

    looks like everyone is having the same problem.
    I live in Québec and when I select the update, they seem
    to download OK as I click OK on the contract conditions to
    accept them and then the update stops.
    I then get the WU page telling me the update was not

    I hope posting another message on this problem will speed
    up Microsoft's support team to solve it more
    diligently....unless someone has found a workaround.

    I have tried this and about 17:00 EST, it did work again.
    Looking at the MS litterature, it looks that this error is
    related to a DNS error where you can not resolve the name
    of the server to download the update from.
    I did also reboot my DSL router just in case this was the
    problem too. So it was either MS's server that was down or
    my connection that was not resolving ant DNS addresses.
    Thanks for the advise.
