Unable to access Windows Update website from Windows XP SP3 KB2497281

I was unable to update a customers Windows XP pc via the web browser but automatic updates worked fine. I thought there was a problem with the disc I had, so I re-installed xp with an original disc but the same problem existed, I recently found an article at: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itproxpsp/thread/7aebba8b-3779-4257-8a21-66828d89da82 where other people were experiencing the same problem, It seems that Microsoft has changed something there end that is stopping updates working via the browser (thanks Microsoft). The fix that worked for me was to re-install Windows Update Agent (WUA) links are provided below.

  • Budgeting and smart choices like these could make all of the difference. Anyone would get bored taking part in} the same games again and again. A playing business without wonderful customer service is hardly a business in any respect. We began 1xbet korean by scouring the internet, taking a look at} all of the playing sites obtainable. When we made a list of the functioning ones, we started to chop down the list in a stepwise process.
