In the Application log of a Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition Service Pack 2 server we continually get the error:
Failed auto update retrieval of third-party root list sequence number from: <http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootseq.txt
> with error: This operation returned because the timeout period expired.

We have Symantec End Point Protection so I tried this fix: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH106277&locale=en_US
and it did not work, even after a reboot.
I also updated Internet Exporer 6 to Internet Explorer 7.
- I see you can uninstall Root Certificates Add/Remove Windows Components but I would like to keep the configuration the same. This seems like a workaround and not a fix.
