    I have Windows 2000 Pro SP3.

    I can see critical updates if i goto just

    However I have set control panel/automatic updates to Notify only but
    can not get it to work. I do not get notified. I am logged in as
    administrator and there are no logging of info in c:\winnt\windows
    update.log. There is logging of info if i goto the website manually

    I have tried the following to force an update cycle but all i get is
    the both the time registry keys reappearing with a new time.

    Try to force a detection cycle,
    1) net stop wuauserv

    2) Delete
    Update\LastWaitTime (if it exists)

    3) Delete
    Update\DetectionStartTime (if it exists)

    4) Make sure that

    5) net start wuauserv

    Any thoughts? How can i get notification to work?
