Downloading takes forever and nothing happens

    In the 'Installing Updates' window, while the downloads are being downloaded
    and installed, the 'Downloading Security Update for Windows XP (KB896423)
    (update 1 of 1)... ' takes forever and nothing happens. This happens for any
    download that I have tried so far (kb896423 is just an example). It starts
    the download, but it is never done, nor does the download installs.

    My OS is XP. I don't know if I have SP1, but I don't think so.
    My 'System Restore' is off.

    I don't know what is going on, since the updates used to work before.
