    WSUS is the best way to get updates for your Network. It will download them nightly and then install when you say in GP.

    You guys really need to set up WSUS - it's a half-hour job at the most.
    We do have WSUS setup however this became an issue for us when a laptop came into the office which had not been on the network in months and so I wanted to get it updated in a hurry.

    I found this was only a problem using Microsoft Update - Windows Update was fine... you could even switch from Microsoft Update > Windows Update and then switching back worked.

    The MS Step-by-step guide isn't bad, though a few more screenshots would've helped: Download details: Step By Step Guide WSUS 3.0 SP2

    Assuming the laptop's behaving (just unpatched), logging in as an admin and issuing
    Code:
     wuauclt /detectnow
    in a command prompt will force it to grab updates from your wsus box. Check %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log after a minute and you should see progress and patches starting to download.

    I can tell you that it worked for me.
    Thank you very much.

    Setting up WSUS 3 SP2 really isn't too difficult and it saves an incredible amount of time and effort updating machines. It will let you specify certain updates (as above) so you can deploy exactly what you want You can also see if any machines are not updating from the comfort of your server chair

    Download here

    If you're running 2008 R2, WSUS will automatically be downloaded when you add the IIS/WSUS roles.

    Thanks to the three of you who recently found the BAT file useful. Just wish I could remember details of the female techie who gave it to me in the first place. I have used it many hundred times since and silently thank her every time I use it. Thankfully there are a lot of good folk about that help make the techie world go round smoother.

    Off thread I include in that the expert at the Bath Apple store who fixed my Art teachers iMack on Thursday and gave me several useful pointers for any future encounters I have with Black screen iMacks - all for Free! That particular machine had the OS disk stuck in it and wouldn't boot - it was either removal and plugging in the power lead from the back of the unit or reseating the RAM that brought it back to life.

    Batch file worked

    Just a quick thanks for your batch file (stopping and starting the update service and registering the .dlls) which worked for me today on an old XP laptop that wouldn't update.
