Says:\n\n"Automatic Updates (allows the site to find, download and install\nhigh-priority updates for your computer)\nBackground Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) (helps updates download more\nquickly and without problems if the download process is interrupted)\nEvent Log (keeps a record of updating activities to help with\ntroubleshooting, if needed)"\n\nPrimary problem, all are turned on, running and sucking up resources and\nWindows Update still doesn't work. Even Tried with Zone Alarm Security turned\nOff, both av & firewall.\n\nRunning WinUpdate manually with only BITS turned on and ZoneAlarm running\nworked just fine. Note MS, this IS NOT how you win friends and influence\nfolks toward your products. A 180 from Win looking better with each MS\nimprovement or security fix they trot out. Anyone have any ideas? From\nactivity here looks like MS is FUBAR with updates. Another nice mess you got\nus in Stanley.
