Are you running a firewall? If you are then disbale it and try the Windows Update again.If it still fails, then go to, start, run, type:regeditClick ok.Follow and locate the following key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\User Agent\Post PlatformNow delete it.However please back it up, by exporting. Thats if you have any problems you can click on the backup and it will put import back into the registry.File > Export > Choose a name > Save
