    I am currently using Win XP with SP2. Running a slow connection (around
    20-40kbps...what can I say, I live in India. It's supposed to be a 256kbps
    connection)

    1) I go into the Update site.

    2) The site loads completly.

    2) I Select Custom Install.

    3) I see the "Windows Update looking for available updates..."

    4)The "Windows Update looking for available updates..." message goes away
    and the left hand frame populates showing with Review high priority updates
    (2), Select optional software updates (2) and Select Hardware updates(1). The
    right hand frame displays "Total updates seleted:" and "Go to install
    updates". below this is a blue line and then blank space where the actual
    updates "Should" be displayed.
    In the Status Bar at the bottom, I see "(3 items remaining) Download picture
    http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft...." but i never finishes downloading(i've
    tried waiting 30min) and my network connection shows no activity
    5) so I click on any of the links on the left hand frame. The page refreshes
    and I get the same thing in the Right hand frame: "Total updates seleted:"
    and "Go to install updates". below this is a blue line and then blank space
    where the actual updates "Should" be displayed.
    6) I've checked my windowsupdate.log file and no errors are reported.

    7) I have also set the update site as a trusted site and disabled pop-ups
    for the site.

    The site loads fairly quickly. All except the updates, which never show up.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Darin
