I have a new system I am going to set up as the domain controller in our shop, but I cannot do that until I get Windows to update. When I go to the update site, windowsupdate.microsoft.com, it checks for the latest version of the update software, then I get the option of doing an Express or Custom update.
Regardless of which option I choose, I am taken to an error page telling me to enable Userdata Persistence in IE with [Error Number 0x800A0046] in the upper right. This is already enabled in all but the Restricted sites and I have added the microsoft update domains to the trusted sites list.
I have IIS v6.0 installed as well as the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration.
When searching the net for this particular error, the results point at either a VBScript error or problems with IIS, but I have not been able to find a problem explanation close enough to this issue to trust the solutions suggested.
I can install patches manually, using MBSA to find out what patches I need, but it is too time consuming to run that, then install the patch manually every time I need to update. I need to find a resolution for this.
