Yeh I had a keyboard driver but nothing from MS. I didn't think we were expecting any.
Have the people who've stayed with the RC had any MS updates?

It could be that the service is disabled, or a service that search needs is off. you can check byryping services.msc in search. see if update is running and if it is check the other things depend are also running


hope this helps

Just reboot, then update!

Did you try something as simple as rebooting then trying Windows Update?

This has fixed that problem for me everytime when it does happen which isn't very often.

Windows Update

Quote:
When you use the Windows Update Web site or the Microsoft Update Web site to check for and install updates, you may receive one of the errors that are listed in the "Symptoms" section.

Important In most cases, these messages are temporary or short-lived issues that are caused by very slight interruptions in communications between the computer that is being updated and the Windows update servers. These issues are generally self-healing. So, before you try the troubleshooting methods in this article, please exit the Windows Update site, wait 10 to 15 minutes, start Windows Update again, and then check for updates. You can also let Windows Automatic Update install the updates on its usual 24-hour cycle.

Note These errors can occur even if no changes have been made to network settings.
You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates

I was out for a while this afternoon, tried the update again and it worked just fine. No errors at all.

Go figure...not sure what it was. Maybe Windows server just temporarily not able to respond at that time?
