    I am running Windows XP SP3 and am trying to download Microsoft's patch for the .LNK vulnerability. I have started Windows Update but it gets as far as "Checking for updates for your computer" and then hangs. The progress bar keeps running but no mattter how long I wait, no updates are shown. Has anyone else had touble with Windows Update today?
