Windows Update Empty, 11/19/2009

Ok, something went wrong, yesterday November-19-2009, Windows Update alerted one new update available:



But, when I click to see what update is, there's nothing, it's empty:



If I click to install, the system stays at 'Downloading updates...' and nothing happen.

Does anyone got the same error? The same 'empty update' this Thursday?

Thanks.

Check your update history, were they actually installed. If so change your settings to notify, but I download.

Have not seen that one, I have had it try to install the same updates over and over again. I had to reset the update componets using How do I reset Windows Update components? it is reset tool from Microsoft. After which all went normal again. Might help ya!
