I am unable to install windows updates since I have installed NIS 2005. I can access the update site and download the updates but when I click to install the updates nothing happens, just the box with "initialising updates appears". [similar things happen when I try to install any programs, but they do work when I disable the firewall - which I have already tried with the updates] I am fairly sure this is something to do with nortons as when I uninstalled it they all worked fine.
Still had problems with NIS and installing the updates, but I did find a solution with your help.
I changed the internet security settings to manual [instead of load on startup], restarted windows and enabled windows firewall [which was not enabled - only 1 firewall was running] and when I tried to install the updates they worked with no problem.
Thanks for your help everyone.
