Microsoft Exchange 2007 Anti-Spam Updates

On our EDGE servers we can no longer get the Exchange Anti-Spam 2007 updates from the Microsoft Updates page.  Both servers are running on Windows 2003 server.  One of the servers is using IE6 and the other is using IE7.  Is there an alternative way to get the Anti-Spam updates?

Can you access internet on the edge servers? Are the agents running and enabled?

We can access the internet on both servers.  Automatic Updates is enabled. BITS is enabled.  The exchange services are enabled.  Are there specific agents you're referring to?

Also, we did try rebooting one of the servers Friday but it didn't correct the problem.

One of my co-workers found the solution.  She deleted Temp Internet Files, the stopped the Automatic Updates and BITS services.  She then re-named the C:\Windows\Software Distribution folder to "OLD".  After that she re-started both services and made sure the Startup Type was set to Automatic.  This corrected the problem.
