Computer freezes when trying to access windows update
I recently reformatted my computer to its original factory state. I have
Windows XP Home SP2. When I run windows update it will analyze and tell me to
download updates. When I try to download it says it's downloading but it just
hangs forever. Any suggestions?

Re: Computer freezes when trying to access windows update
Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you repair a Windows XP
installation:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

NB: Also applies to clean installs, upgrade installs, and Recovery installs.
