Can you please ouline the exact steps you took to solve the problem using
> System: Windows Home Server
> Browser: IE8
> WUA: Windows Update Agent 7.2.6001.788 - Installed 10/21/2009 via
> Automatic Updates (Note this was the last update installed.)
> I am unable to update my system due the error listed in the subject. The
> page displays the following message:
> "The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are
> trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem."
> The Automatic Update control panel indicates that the Automatic Updates
> service is enabled and set to "Automatic (recommended)". The Services
> management tool indicates that the service is "Started".
> However the Microsoft Updates page directs me to enable the AU service.
> Note: There are no related errors in the event logs.
> I've tried the following:
> Disable "Microsoft Updates" => "Windows Updates" fails the same way and
> indicates that AU should be enabled.
> Reinstalling the Windows Update Agent => "WUA is already installed. No
> changes made."
> Removing the contents of %WINDIR%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore
> REGSRV => No difference in observable behavior

Assuming you're not running WHS & to avoid confusion, please begin a new
thread about your specific problem and computer. State your IE version and
full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2; Vista SP1; Vista
64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) in your first post. Thank you.
