This one was driving me nuts - MSE would fail when trying to update as we sit behind the LEA's web proxy at work. I couldn't for the life of me understand why - nor were there any settings in application, nor did it seem to read from IE's proxy settings.
I found the solution the other day to actually get it to read from IE's settings. Here's how:
1) Set your desired proxy settings up in IE and test
2) Open a Command Prompt (with Admin rights) and type:
3) Open MSE and update it - it should now work.
If you are using this on a machine such as a laptop that roams and is used outside of a proxy server, simply disable the proxy settings in IE and run proxycfg -u again.
Hope this is of use to those tearing their hair out like I was!
Or let your WSUS server take the strain.
Well to be honest you shouldnt be using it, that's why it's not easy
You should be using Microsoft Forefront Instead

Very true but just making the point that seeing as EduGeek isn't just aimed at schools support, the above information would be more helpful to others than a should be using Forefront comment.
Take your point, but OP's signature clearly indicates he is at a school and therefore cannot legally use MSE on computers in his workplace.
