    This appears in my network activity windows on outpost pro:

    SVCHOST.EXE au.download.windowsupdate.com HTTP HTTP connection 140.7 KB 8844 Bytes 3189 bps OUT 17:48:13 47 sec(s) local:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx TCP 1228 au.download.windowsupdate.com

    I have windows update turned off, so why does windows update have a connection open?

    o_O

    Its just one issue after another for me at the moment!

    Have you double checked your settings? Is the service started?
    If you really want to stop Windows autoupdates, you may need to stop and then disable the service.
