JSI Tip 5934. Windows Update show no updates available on a freshly installed computer?

If you install Windows from the original retail CD-ROM, when you visit Windows Update, it should find updates applicable to your computer.

If Windows Update does NOT find any updates, check the date on your computer. If the date is set too early, the Microsoft certificate may have expired.

To resolve this issue, set the computer date to the current date.
