    No problems that I see. Http://update.microsoft.com is working perfectly here.

    At what stage is it freezing up on you?

    Here are some random googles -

    1.Delete temp files and cookies.

    2.Delete oem.inf files - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q281967

    3.If you`ve got Norton,get rid of it,and replace it with something else.

    4.Try re-registering some windows update componentes.

    Go to: START --> RUN --> regsvr32 dispex.dll <enter>

    It worked for me.

    If WU continues to freeze, try the same above procedure with the components below:

    regsvr32 msscript.ocx
    regsvr32 vbscript.dll
    regsvr32 scrrun.dll

    That wasn't rude WilliamR, but never the less your politeness is much appreciated. :)

    As for more suggestions other than those that Peddant gavce you above, it could be one of those things that's a pain to track down.

    It might proove useful if you could possibly answer the question I asked in my reply. Have you tried any of Peddants suggestions yet?
