Microsoft Windows Updates are not installing
I am trying to install Windows Updates, but the update application fails with an error.
The Windows Update application does not like to be proxied. The application has issues with the proxy's authentication, caching, ICAP services, and SSL interception.

The main reason Microsoft does this is because most updates are tailored to the Operating System requesting the file. As a result, updates may differ from PC to PC and it should not be assumed that one patch will be ideal for all PC’s unless it’s a cumulative package downloaded from the MS Download Center for that particular patch.
Limited HTTP Range Support
Service Pack Dynamic Downloads
The following CPL disables the above proxy functions to the currently known Microsoft Update servers, as of this writing.
You should install this CPL into your Local Policy file exactly as it appears. If you continue to have issues with the Microsoft Updates after installing this CPL, please call your Blue Coat Support provider and be prepared to provide a policy trace and a client side packet capture.
