EPO Agent slow to update

We are experiencing issues with EPO agent (hotfix 6 or 7), VSE and EPO server 5.3.1 (build 188), hotfix 1117371. EPO is running on Server 2008 R2 and the clients are fully updated Windows 7 x64. We have noticed that for some reason when you hit update on the agent it sits there doing nothing for 3-4 minutes then completes the update successfully. We have looked at task manager and the machine doesn't seem to be doing anything while this pause is happening. Anyone else experienced this or have an ideas how to resolve this please? Previously the updater would start checking almost instantly.

Hi maropealgarve,

I don´t know how but all of my computer seems to be working ok. Although, there are some machines with outdated version of VSE and patch that don´t update. In these case I figure out a windows problem, something in windows installer, I think. I did a complete windows update and the VSE and patch upgrade worked.

Now I´m upgrading all computers agents with VSE 8.8 patch 7 to agent version
