    I am running XP pro and get the the automatic
    installation of critical updates from the update from the
    update site. BUT just recently, I have noticed that I
    can't scan for other updates. When I click scan for
    updates it just hangs at 0% forever. I noticed this in
    the last couple of weeks (post blasterworm alert)? Where
    before I had no problem with the scan for updates
    feature. ANYBODY ELSE EXPERIENCING THE SAME GLITCH?? ANY
    RESOLUTIONS OUT THERE??

    THANKS
