Many times here in the WSUS product support group we get calls that boil down to some sort of issue with the client. Maybe a DLL is no longer registered for some reason, or maybe the proxy isn’t configured, who knows. Well what if I told you there was an easy way to repair almost any common Windows Update client configuration issue with just a few clicks of your mouse?
Well today you can do this thanks to one of our new Microsoft Fix It automated solutions. With just a few clicks you can reset the Windows Update client and make it work like new. To check this out for yourself visit KB971058: How do I reset the Windows Update settings? and click on the Fix It button:
I won’t go into all the gory details about what this cool Fix It does as you can read that directly from the source, but the next time you think you may have a problem with one of your Windows Update clients you might give this a shot. You never know, it just might save you a couple hours that would otherwise be better spent playing Server Quest.
