Thanks Suliman, We are running WSUS on the same server as MS Forefront Security and is set to sync directly from Microsoft (once a day) The Windows updates also show "Windows is up-to-date" in the Windows update section.
We are currently experiencing some issues with the certificate service on the SAME server. By looking at the logs, does anyone have any ideas what is going on?

Forefront use Windows Update to update it's files and definition. If this is the problem you can stop the windows update service To do this, open a command prompt (cmd) with admin rigths and run net stop wuauserv Then you need to rename the folder C:\Windows\Software Distrib Serchlop, Windows updates work fine.
immediately start download update by run in cmd wuauclt.exe/detectnow and check if this process it come in task manager and increasing and you see yellow icon for update , click on it and install the fcs component..
If not , check services " Automatic Updates, BIT intellient Background "are started.
