Windows updates stops responding when I run it manually
Hi,

Although my Windows Updates is configured to run automatically, occasionally
I like to run Windows Update manually. However, when I run Windows Update
manually lately, I noticed that it runs indefinitely while searching for
critical updates for my XP machine. The only way I have of stopping it is by
pressing ctrl+alt+del simultaneously and then ending the windows update task.
This use never happen before. Incidently, I did install Microsoft Update
application about 3 weeks ago and ever since then I can't successfully run
windows update manually. When I choose All Programs from my start menu, I
noticed that there is now a new program appearing on the menu call Microsoft
Update with a blue down arrow. This programs actually points to the
C:\WINDOWS\system32\muweb.dll,LaunchMUSite location. This new muweb.dll
file was created on May 7 last and I'm really tempted to delete it because I
feel it has interferred with my normal Windows Update manual process.

Like I mentioned before, my XP PC is configured to run windows update
automatically but I can't seem to run windows update manually anymore which
is very annoying. Incidently, if I upgraded to XP SP3 would it resolve this
problem? More info about this Microsoft Update file is found @
http://dll-repair-tools.com/dll/inte...-with-muwebdll.
It was never my intention to install this Microsoft Update file but I only
did it in response to some Outlook problem I had at the time. Is there
anyway I can configure my PC to run the native Windows Update program instead
of this new Microsoft Update when I run Windows update each time. I would
appreciate any suggestions to this very annoying problem.

Re: Windows updates stops responding when I run it manually
Switch your default update source from Microsoft Update back to Window
Update and see if the behavior persists, Martin.

Go to Microsoft Update | Click on Change Settings in left pane | Scroll to
bottom of page | To Stop Using Microsoft Update | Disable Microsoft Update
software and let me use Windows Update only (check).

With Windows Update as your default, you will need to check in at Office
Update to keep your Office applications fully patched:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/do...incatalog.aspx

NB: If you're visiting Microsoft Update during peak demand (e.g., on Patch
Tuesday and the following week), what you're seeing may be due to excessive
demand on the servers. Try again, later.
