Windows Update Problems

Had quite a few searches recently with people having trouble getting the updates from Windows Update.

Make sure your clock is set to the correct time, sometimes when your clock is far enough from the time on Windows Update, the scan from Windows Update uses SSL and if the time is far enough apart the process will fail.

Another thing to check is to make sure you have a language set in your options, at the top of the bar in Internet Explorer, click on tools, click the button marked languages and make sure at least one language is selected.

You can also check out the Windows Update Troubleshooter including the following topics:

There are many, many links you can check to see if you are experiencing the same trouble downloading updates.
