Anyone know if there is a problem with the "Windows Update" site? As of May 11, 2010 I could not access it for 2 days now.  I get an error report indicating that he has a "problem with the site '... Not sure if it's my computer or the site itself. I just need to check updates and download them. I would be grateful for any feedback...  Thank you!

It is without a doubt.  There were a few patches published today, and I was able to update all my machines successfully.  This looks more like a virus problem.  Have you run a virus scan recently?  Many times, if you are infected the virus will prevent you to access Windows Update.

You can also use Microsoft Fix It to reset the Windows Update components:  This could also be your problem.

Let me know how it goes,

    You are correct George: whenever you access the site Windows or Microsoft Update, Windows Update will take care of updating itself. that is, it looks for updates available from the Windows Update Agent or the customer allows you to update your system.

    Since June 21, 2012 a WUA new version 7. 6. 7600. 256 aired by WU to automatically update itself its version now aged 7. 4. 7600. 226 .

    The problem you see may occur when there is a version mismatch of the file with the Windows Update Agent files, which is a mixture of old files with the new files. This is due to an installation "or damaged."

    You can take a look at your windowsupdate.log file located in your WINDOWS directory, to check the error codes - missing files or failling updated files (especially c:\windows\system32\wuapi.dll, wups2.dll, c:\windows\system32\wups.dll or wuweb.dll).

    I intend to buy a Apple Watch, United States of America, but I own a European iPhone 6 Plus device. Anyone know if I have a problem with the sync between devices? I don't think, but it would be more useful to have a definite answer for this as my assumption...

    Hi John

    The devices normally work together.

    There is no difference in the hardware specifications for the watch. It can be configured to use your preferred language and format of the region.

    Adapter USB power to the watch will be located in the United States. To charge your watch via food in Europe, you can use the magnetic charge cable supplied together with a real 5W Apple (iPhone) or 12W (iPad) adapter USB power (or with a third party, Apple certified adapter).
