If your Squid server happen to be on Linux OS, usually /etc/hosts entries
should affecting name queries. Just add entry to
your internal windowsupdate IP address. Perhaps more like this :

# file /etc/hosts windowsupdate

Then don't forget to ask Squid to re-read its configuration files.

$ /path/to/squid -k reconfigure

But as always, don't take it from me, I've never tried that strategy yet and
you should try yourself in a non-production environment.
