This was predicted for today but it wasn't there earlier. It is there
now, as of 2240 GMT Tuesday.

I've got a packet sniffer so I'll post the URL's of the files that got
downloaded.

By the way, does anyone know why you need to have automatic update
services on automatic for IE Windows Update to work? Manual isn't good
enough, even if you start the service. Oh well, I shut it off after
the d/l.

Joel, I have never activated "automatic" (and never intend to).
Just checked the Update Page and selected "Custom", and the updates are
listed as available for me to choose.
