Re: ie 8 windows update does not work
[crosspost to IE General]
Please state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP2) when
posting to this newsgroup.
See is disabling your third-party firewall and then enabling the Windows
Firewall corrects the problem.
If no joy...
What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
in the background when you installed IE8?
Has a Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this machine
(e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought it)?
