Windows update down again?

  • From: variable
  • Date: Sun Aug 17 17:26:40 2003

Hi all,

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 
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/.

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?
