Recently I have been unable to access windows updates. When I try to log onto the site my internet explorer freezes.

Has anybody else experienced a similalr problem?

Just run it and no problems here.

Make sure you let the page fully load before selecting the "Express" or "Custom" button.

Unfortunately I cannot get that far! When I try to go onto the widnows update v6 default page IE just hangs. I left it for a few minutes but it still stated that it was still opening. The only to get out is to close down via Windows Task Manager.

What version of IE are you running? And what address do you access the update site from?

I have IE7 version 7.0.5370.11

Access to Windows Update via the shortcut in All Programs to click here

That is the same link thatI use. When I ran it from your link it simply hung again.

Not sure what to do as I do not want to be witohut the latest updates.

Should I install IE7? Will thata resolve it?
