Microsoft Updates not working
Posted on 2011-03-24
I am trying to update windows XP. The automatic updates are working and I can update using WSUS offline but when I try using the web page I get the flowing error:
Please change your Internet Explorer security settings
To save changes to your settings for this website, you need to enable userdata persistence for Internet Explorer. Complete the steps below, and then click Change settings to the left and try saving your changes again.
In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

In the Settings dialog box, scroll to the Miscellaneous section.
Under Userdata persistence , select Enable.
Click OK and when the security warning dialog box appears, click Yes.
