Uhm. This is my own thread :P

And since the same problem exists, thought I'd post here instead of making a new thread.

Sorry about that! not enough caffeine!
Having said that, it is really a new problem, if the search for updates is now functional, but the install is no longer working fully.
I would encourage you to start a new thread for that reason - it does allow more people to respond (WU is definitely not my speciality - I just hsppen to know some stuff because of the interaction with WGA processes)
