    Software Update says

    "New software is available for your computer" and then the list (in the blue and white striped box) is empty. Also the "install" button at the bottom s grayed out and only "quit" is clickable.

    If I bring up the Software Update preferences panel and click "check Now" I get the warning box "Failed to check for updates Make sure you can connect to the Internet then try again"

    I am connected to the Internet, if I were not you all couldn't be reading this

    Okay, try quitting Software Updater, finding a file named and in your Preferences folder (XXX represents a series of seemingly random numbers), dragging it to the Desktop and checking if things are now better. :)
