Colengmail,
Please describe 'how' you are trying to run the update.
Can you get to the basic Microsoft.com web page - using Internet Explorer?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Thanks for the quick reply. Couple of notes:
We are updating a couple of ways: checking for updates through control panel and also by opening IE and after accessing Internet (home page loads) going to Tools > Windows Update

So, we can get on the internet with no problem, same error each time.
Also, we updated 8 other machines (same LT's) with no problems during the day....
The laptop was last updated on 12/28/10 during an intial build (from Dell)  and it has sat in a box until now.

I will get the update agent (good idea) and also open a ticket with MS....I will let you know......

First run system readiness tool

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=44e15787-66b0-4e9c-9c3b-1fc9ea40f69f

32bit system readiness tool

It will create checksur.log. Upload the checksur.log in EE for analysis.



After running system readiness tool restart the computer and then try installing service pack 1.

Turns out it was a problem with the proxy server, by changing the setting for the proxy server I was able to go out and get the updates.
BTW...this did not happen on the previous 8 LT's with the same build.

Thanks for your efforts.
