I cant belive this,my pc was working fine until last night i noticed i kept getting the little yellow icon for when u get "Windows Update's" in the bottom right hand of your desktop, NOW its took me almost 4 minutes to get to this site to post this its much slower than Dailup,before i spend the next 4 hours uninstalling my "OS" then re-installing it with all the updates for all the programs i use,ive NOT d/loaded any files in the last few days so the only thing i can think of is the windows updates..but i cant see how...? i run on Xp Pro (Genuine)!! Has anyone else had the same issue...?? anyway ive tried to add a couple of links to my photobucket account & it simply wont do it but on the yahoo home page i keep getting a message saying "Sorry unable to process your request at this time error code 999" then in google its got a similar message saying "We're sorry but your request looks similar to that of a computer Virus or spyware application we cant process your request right now"
its now took me 20 mins to type this text,

The little yellow Icon is very likely Windows Update.

What AV, Firewall and AntiSpyWare are you running?

I assume the you update this daily or weekly at the very least.
