Web filters do not allow windows updates
Hi, I am using K9 Web filter on a desktop running Windows XP Professional
SP2. Within K9, I have all websites blocked except for www.microsoft.com,
www.windowsupdate.microsoft.com and www.update.microsoft.com.

When I go to www.microsoft.com, I click on windows update. I then get a
screen saying windows is checking for available updates and then the screen
changes to say the website has encountered a problem and cannot display the
page you are trying to view. Error No. 0x80080003

When I uninstall K9, the update works just fine.

Please help.

Thank you.

Re: Web filters do not allow windows updates
Have you added these:

http://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
https://*.windowsupdate.microsoft.com
http://download.windowsupdate.com

Re: Web filters do not allow windows updates
Can only suggest you contact K9 regarding their product.
As an alternative, you may be able to disable the program and then do WU manually and then
re-enable it.
Just a thought.
