    Software Update does not work on my system.

    I start it, it goes off and looks for new stuff and then tells me there are updates available but the list of new software is empty and the "update" button is grayed out with only the quit button click-able.

    Maybe there is some way to completely zap Software Update's database or re-install the application.

    I've been going to Apple's download site to get updates.. They install fine and I'm 100% up to date

    Maybe reinstall the latest combo update and also delete com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist from your Preferences folder. :)
