    ActiveX to make checks of your computer work, and Mime to download the upgrades. I think that's it, but if not, search this forum, there were definite answers given, and Microsoft offers help in their updates section - I think FAQ about updates.

    Plus you must give server rights to both IE and Windows explorer, along with lowering the status of your firewall before clicking update.
    You will have to physically go to the site and in the privacy settings allow everything.
    Sometimes it simply works by giving Windows Explorer and whatever programs pop up upon bootup asking for server rights access, but that's a little to dangerous just to have the 'Soft check up on you.
