    Server Error 403 Forbidden: Access is denied

    Running Windows XP SP3 attempting Windows Update.
    Attempted to use the information in the below thread, however, I am not
    having any success. I have attempted reinstalling the Update agent,
    restarting computer and still receiving the same error. Part of the tread
    was a little too technical and I was getting lost.

    I am having the same problem.
    I will wait, because it's not on my end.

    Same here on several XP SP3 machines. German Version.
    It sure is on Microsoft's side this time.

    I'm encouintering the same problem as well. I haven't changed my system so I
    don't know what's causing this.

    This has been going on for about two hours. It is connected with the ActiveX
    MUWebControl.

    I am seeing this on both server and xp - also, IE6 IE7, IE8 all experiencing
    the issue...

    Logon to Windows with username:Administrator
    Then go to update website, it should work

    You suggested solution didn't work for me.

    This is really a Microsoft problem based on the number of people with the
    problem. The work around for now is to download one of the following updates
    and run it.

    32-Bit
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/wi...gent30-x86.exe

    64-Bit
    http://download.windowsupdate.com/wi...gent30-x64.exe

    Ian - Some of us can't install IE8 to begin with. If it was related to IE8
    only, that would be great and your post would be helpful. Unfortunately it's
    plaguing IE6, 7 and 8. We're glad it worked for you, congrats, but that's
    not a solution that can be applied to all scenarios.

    Thomas - Thank you. I haven't tested the downloads out yet, but at least
    it's a step in the right direction. Do you have a URL where Microsoft says
    what the problem is? It would be nice if they put word out about it, until
    then I can spread the word to my peers via email.

    RE: Server Error 403 Forbidden: Access is denied

    This was caused by a bad DNS record that prevented older clients from being
    able to resolve to the correct address to SelfUpdate ( Upgrade to the
    latest Update client. )
    This has been fixed, but it will take a while to propagate to all DNS
    servers.
    The newer clients use a different url, so they are not affected. This is
    why updating the client manually avoids the problem.

    I had the same problem and it was somehow connected to ActiveX install. I
    turned off my firewall and antivirus temporary and the update worked.
