    Hi,

    I set my Windows Update to " Notify me, don't automatically download or install them". Recently my update notification icon on the system tray state that there is an update ready for me to download. But when I clicked on the icon, it does not respond as before. How can I repair it.

    Thanks

    Can you go to the Security Centre under Control Panel?
    This will show you the current settings for Windows Update. Try turning updates off, saving, then turning updates on again?

    cheers, Paul

    Hi Paul,

    I did just as you instructed. Still no luck. I forgot to mention that each time after I clicked on the Window update icon and there is no response, I cannot shut down the computer (Start orb/turn off computer). The computer will freeze.

    Thanks

    You may have to do a XP System Repair. Elder Geek shows a comprehensive list of the various methods available for XP users. It is entirely possible you have some system files corupted. Unfortunately this system repair is more involved than later versions of Windows (Win 7 specifically has much easier repair options).

    hi,

    I have managed to find a solution to my problem. I simply boot in safe mode, delete all files in Windows/Software distributions and reboot. The icon is working OK now.

    Thanks to everyone.
