Info on statement in update log
Today I received the windows update notification for 4 files but the files
have not started to download. Windows update log shows the following for
each of the updates::
"Update is not allowed to download due to regulation."
Can some one explain what this means?

Thanks Engel,
I see that "Update is not allowed to download due to regulation" means that
the servers are too busy. It would be nice if it just said that instead of
this cryptic message.

Re: Info on statement in update log
Updates are not downloaded or the Automatic Updates icon does not display
the status of downloads when you enable the Automatic Updates service:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910340

Absent any serious numerical Errors in your windowsupdate.log, you;re seeing
a delay caused by excessive demand on the servers. It can take up to 7 days
or more (sometimes much more) for all Automatic Update users to get new
updates.

You can try downloading/installing the updates via Windows/Microsoft Update
(WinXP) or running Windows Update manually (Vista) instead: Understand that
by doing so, you're pushing all the Automatic Updates users further back in
the queue (which may explain, at least in part, why Automatic Updates hasn't
brought them in for you yet).
