After Downloading MS automatic updates today, I closed down all running programs and clicked on the restart box. The screen went as far as "Windows is shutting down" and no further, it stuck there for about three minuets and I finally had to Re Boot the system. I've never had this before after installing updates, has anyone else had this problem. It seems to be OK at the moment. The only program I had running a the time was Real Player, and I/E. I run XP home.
