Windows Update missing on Server 2003 Std

I wento to run Windows update on my Windows 2003 server this morning and all I find in the start menu is Microsoft Update. I tried it and 16 updates appear. I select them and they all fail in the download process. The server has internet access and I can go to Microsoft.com, Google, Adobe....

How do I resolve this?

In System Properties, I've set Windows updates to download automatically. It has downloaded updates and they are installing now, but allow me to decide which to install. That is working, but how to I get the Windows Update app back in the start menu?

Create a short cut in start menu with target as "%windir%\system32\wuapp.exe startmenu" and start in "%windir%\system32".

You can use the same link in Internet Explorer also.

Open IE and Click on tools and Windows Update.

I get a message that wuapp.exe is not found. This is very unusual. I ran Winddows update a month ago and it worked perfectly.

The problem resolved itself by copying the Windows update URL from another server and opening it up on the server with the problem and running updates.
