How To Fix Windows Update
How To Fix Windows Update (BITS/AU) [Newly Edited] ?
I'm posting this to the two forums, which have helped me in
the past, since there's a real scarcity of information on the Net
about this subject.
I did the same in regards to how to fix Norton's Live Update
a while ago, which seemed to help a bunch of people, sooooo... About two months ago, my Windows Update feature stopped working.
I could not download Critical Updates (much less the optional ones).
I researched it for about two weeks, learned everything I could,
tried everything and nothing worked.
Finally I chose the option to speak with a M.S. Tech. Rep.,
because apparently since a lot of people were having the
same or similar problems, they put in an option where you
could speak to one directly (for free) for this (and closely) related
What ensued was a very friendly, ongoing, two week, detailed,
trial and error e-mail correspondence (which I won't print here, obviously).
What you see below is the final result, after everything finally worked.
Hope it's helpful to someone:
Before you start -- I recommend if you have any kind of
Symantec (Norton) Firewall, turn on your Windows Firewall
first and then turn the Symantec (Norton) Firewall off.

Windows Firewall (or configure any other firewall you may have).
