You may never have been seen this problem or noticed to it.Then read and beware.
... Last week I saw unusual behavior from one of my servers related to automatic update, then did it manually but it fails and microsoft tell that I should change one of my MSIE security setting to update could be done. I did any thing that it said and search any where with no result!I decided to try to solve the problem by my self.The solution was:
In Windows 2000 automatic update I changed the setting to Automatic (recommended).
Meanwhile in your MSIE check the
"Security" tab ->" Internet Zone" -> "Custom Level" -> "Miscellaneous" section "Userdata Persistence" should be "enable".
