    Windows Update Fails (SP1+)

    I'm trying to update my SP1. When I used IE Tools/Windows Update to reach update site IE hung. Did a search in this forum and found a suggestion to try using Start/All Programs/Windows Update. That worked and I downloaded and installed 22 updates. It looks like everything up to SP2. Guess what? When I went back to the Windows Update site using Start/All Programs/Windows Update, it hung. What do I do now?

    Had been suffering from Spyware, but ran Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, and MS Antispyware tool in safe mode and cleaned up a lot of malware. Then, I tried the Windows Update described above.

    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks Hans. The V5 troubleshooter did the job by linking me to the Update site with V5 inserted at the front of the URL. Is that an alternate entry point to the site?

    The v5 version is the current one. The "standard" link begins with v5.
