    I've recently ran some of the most recent updates and all
    the critical ones loaded. However as I try to update the
    remainder, I have the same reoccurring problem on some
    but not all. I have and HP503N that I got in December of

    1. The update page loads, scans and I can select the
    ones I want to load and the download completes.
    2. The install process is very, very slow. Some 1meg
    updates takes an hour or more to install.
    3. The install % complete graph will finnally show all
    filled in and complete.
    4. I never get the completion message, the update
    application in the task mananger says running, but CPU
    utilization is 98% on Idle processes so I know nothing is
    5. I can close the window but it tells me it's not
    through and doesn't update the logs so it thinks I still
    need the update.
    6. I get no error messages are error logs.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Are you still seeing this problem? Can you try manually downloading and
    installing the update using the Windows Update Catalog.
    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/catalog do you see the same behavior?
    This will help us determine if this is a problem with the Windows Update
    site or the update.

    I have this EXACT same problem, and from the looks of
    things here, we aren't the only two with this problem.

    It would be nice to have SOME kind of an answer to this,
    besides 'use the catalog instead'.

    Any ideas? Anyone?
