Windows Update Site Overloaded with People or what?!?

    Whenever I go to Windows Update, it stops at
    "Checking for the latest version of the Windows Update software...

    Depending on your connection speed, this might take a minute. During this
    time, you may receive one or more security warnings. Review each security
    warning to ensure that the content is signed by Microsoft, and then click
    Install or Yes to install the software."

    The box came up once. I let it download, and it is since in my Downloaded
    Program Files. I went to the Dl'd Prog Files, right clicked and updated it.
    It's v. 5. All the ActiveX scripts are set to enable in IE options. What
    should I do to get my Updates back?!? Would clearing all my cookies, temp net
    file...etc, help this matter?

    And by the way, after the page loads, in about a second, I hear two clicks,
    the sounds like when you click on a link and it opens a new page. Could that
    be WU trying to get me something? And is it possible that the Windows Update
    site is getting to much traffic and is overdeluged with people?

    Wow. That was a tough one to fix. I had the same issue on my second
    machine, but not the first.

    Here's what I did to fix.

    Go delete the Update class from Downloaded Program Files (Tools, Internet
    Options, Settings, View Files)

    open the URL
    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/CAB/x86/unicode/iuctl.CAB?38217.8299305556

    That's the URL from my working machine of the update class. Download and
    unpack that cab file to a directory. Right click the iuctl.inf and click
    install. Let it do it's thing and close IE and reopen it with Windows Update.

    Hope this helps.
