    I am seeing this too. Update just hangs for hours in "The updates are being
    downloaded and installed" window. No other messages appear. I've tried
    express and custome installed, and even went to each individual path to
    attempt a successful download.

    You are getting farther than I was yesterday with xp windows update. The
    problem I was having was when I clicked on custom or express -- the web page
    would not display -- it gave me some error message. I went to the knowledge
    base and looked up the error message -- followed those directions for my
    particular error -- then it still would not work. I tried it first thing
    today -- it is OK -- so I don't know what cured the problem. Maybe I needed
    to re-boot after I followed the directions, but they did not say to do that.
    Just re-start explorer which is what I did.
