    Firstly, any reason for not using WSUS 3?

    Usually these problems are proxy related (yes that poxy server again!). Nothing in the logs?

    gaz350 might still be using Windows 2000 Server, as WSUS 3.0 only works on 2003 Server or later.

    Are all services that WSUS needs running correctly? I've had this happen to me once ages ago and a reboot did cure it. Alternatively stop and start each service manually.

    @Ric_ - Surely if it was proxy related then nothing would be downloaded?

    Some how i missed your responses and thought i would come back to post my solution just incase someone else needs it in future!!

    Anyway the Microsoft update sites were set to bypass content filtering, but not the AV filter. For what ever reason, not really looked into it, updates were failing on the AV filtering, causing things to get stuck.

    @Ric: No real reason, we dont have a large number of PC's (mainly macs) and WSUS 2 was doing the job. Moving to WSUS 3 soon though.

    probably a file extension/mime type block on .msi and/or .exe files.
