I am on XP Pro and when I go to the update site it gets to the, checking for windows updates, and just hangs there. I have tried it three or four times with the same results! Any ideas please?

I had similar problem after installing SP2. Eventually reset internet zone settings in Internet Explorer to 'Default' settings and was able to run Windows Update. Apparently you have to have click here and click here included in your trusted sites under security tab in the tools>internet options in Internet explorer.

Thanks for your help. Both of your links get me back to the MS page I get stuck on. I do not have SP2 installed yet but have it on my hard disk ready to load
