Failure to finish searching my computer

    For several months now, whenever I try to use Windows Update, the process
    goes to the step of "searching your computer for updates [or something like
    that]" and it never completes the search. My guess is that if I hadn't just
    stopped the process and gone on to other things on the Internet, it would
    still be "searching" after 2 months! Why does Windows Update not complete
    the search, and what can I do to get it to work properly?

    I have a fresh XPSP2 system that is doing the same thing...Automatic Updates
    appears to somehwat work if you leave if connected forever, but you can
    initiate Microsoft Updates, it just 'checks' forever.
