Hallo brolek,


what kind of server is that machine ? Member or dc server ? Did you try to run SP4 again, this should fix the update prob also.

Geht es hier um einen WSUS-Client oder um einen WindowsUpdate/MicrosoftUpdate-Client?


Google bitte mal nach: "WindowsUpdateAgent20-x86.exe" und probiere dann ein


"WindowsUpdateAgent20-x86.exe /wuforce /quiet /norestart"


Dies sollte den WindowsUpdate-Agent wieder ins System prügeln. Hat bei mir immer funktioniert.
