Simple problem. I have a number of pcs on my home network, all have ADSL access via a router. Two of them run Windows XP, one a desktop, the other a laptop connected by 802.11b. Recently the desktop one has stopped being able to get any windows updates, but not in the way you'd imagine. By which I mean it isn't failing as such with any error, but after going through the usual checking procedure, it simply informs me "There are no updates available for your computer. Please check back later." The problem is that I know that there are updates, indeed critical updates, because I've just updated the laptop with them. This has been going on for quite a while now, more than a month I think, so I know that a number of recent security patches are missing from the desktop machine's installation. Has anyone else experienced this? What I find quite worrying, is that someone with only one machine could be suffering the same problem, and be totally unaware of it. I have checked the MS knowledge base, but I couldn't find anything relevant.
