Just general failures I'm afraid.

Ok, I see. Should I add reload-into-ims or should I avoid it?

Sorry, forgot to write that. Windows 7 and 8.
But I just found a possible cause for error that I didn't
see earlier. We had an old line
refresh_pattern -i xxx 0 0% 0
with update.microsoft.com among others in the xxx pattern.
I removed that update.microsoft.com and now it seems to work.
We will let it be like this for a week and check status later.
