Twice in one week that someone thinks I have a great mind. Something weird must be happening in the world.

Of course, as long as it's picking up updates then the reporting issue can just be added to the infamous TODO list I guess :-)

And its now reported back!! Woooo!
Last question, will the clients all automatically update on its next scheduled cycle or will they all have to be forced?

I would suspect that if they have the same problem as the PC that's now working, things will just fall into place as they can now access the files they need :-)
Possibly wouldn't hurt to add "wuauclt /detectnow" to a startup script to try and coax them along but I don't think it's necessary.

I knew this would be IIS it just sounded right! The machines should report back on their next schedule I don't think a force will be needed.
Glad the issue is sorted Chris!
