I've never disabled or uninstalled my anti-virus software before downloading from Microsoft's update site, and I've never received any errors.

Of course if you're having problems, it's definitely something to try. I'm only pointing out that the article Rollin' Rog posted is not entirely accurate in that it is not necessary to disable anti-virus software in order to ever successfully download updates.

I sometimes forget to do it too, but InoculateIT is fairly low profile. It's still a good practice as you never know when the stuff is going to hit the fan -- and fouled updates can sometimes be difficult to recover from. The more major the update or install, the wiser it is to reduce the possibility of conflicts during the process.
