I have exhausted all possible attempts to correct the problem, including running the tool that updates it manually, reinstalling WD, updating via Windows Updates, reregistering Windows Updater, and reinstalling Windows Updater. I always get a message saying WD is trying to launch MS Error Report before WD says it cannot update. Even if I disable my firewall WD cannot update. All other udates in Widows Updater have worked fine even since installing SP3 for XP. This appears to be another problem on MS' end like the one causing the same problem back in 2006 when WD Beta 2 came out. It took them about a week to fix that one. Hopefully this one will be corrected too.
