I was just updating a couple of Windows machines and had been using
Windows Update without any problems until about 5 mins ago (22:10 GMT)
when I've started getting this:
"Thank you for your interest in Windows Update
Windows Update is the online extension of Windows that helps you get the
most out of your computer.
The latest version of Windows Update is available on computers that are
running Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows
Millennium Edition, Windows 2000 (except Windows 2000 Datacenter Server),
Windows XP, and the Windows Server 2003 family."
URL is http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/default.asp which redirects
to http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/thanks.asp. Also happens for
This is from multiple machines running Windows 2000 (Pro and Server) and
Windows 2003 server. Anyone else seeing this yet?
Does anyone know of an alternative URL for Windows Update in the meantime?
