Why not? I have a problem with Windows Update with SM and Vista Home
Premium, but my older XP machine updates nicely with SM. Please let me
know why one can't use windows update with SM.

how do you get win update with SM?  In all the years I've tried, I've
never gotten it to work. So, whats your secret?
Does IE Tab work in Seamonkey?  I know when I'm using Firefox on my
Windows XP partition with IE Tab I can go to Windows Update and have it

yes, IETab does work but version
ie_tab- was the last one.  And yes,
with IE Tab, then you can use windows update, but you can't use SM to
access windows update.

Why do you need a "browser" for WUP, if using XP just right-click on
MyComputer, select "Properties" and then the "Automatic Updates" tab and
make your choice(s). No browser needed or necessary.

Cause that only gets security updates for example?
WU provides other non-critical updates and even drivers for not-tech-enthusiasts ;-)

Drivers should not be retrieved from WU. Had too many clients try that and totally screw up their systems. Always best to use the manufacturers site.

And Microsoft Update is better than WU, as it offers the patches for all of their products, whereas WU only offers Windows updates.
