Hello,

I have a server 03 that I want to use the Windows Update Service.  I've installed and downloaded all the packages.  I've create GP object to point to http://servername:8530.  When launching windows update i get an error.  When trying to launch the web http://servername:8530/forceupdate I get an Directory Listing Denied error.

a mix of windows xp, 7, server 03 x5

"ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value. "


This means that the client is not getting the WSUS GPO applied to it

NOT  A VIRUS

Sure did http:#a38844628  it doesnt exist <<<which you didnt respond to.

launching the web to  http://servername:8530/forceupdate is not the correct way to troubleshoot WSUS. From what we have so far, you need to troubleshoot why the client isnt picking up the Group policy.
