Unable to download anything other than High Priority Updates
When I try to down load Software or Hardware updates in either Windows Update
or Microsoft Update I just get a smaller 'Welcome to Microsoft Update' window
appearing where the list of updtaes should, asking me to choose either
Express or Custom. Any ideas, I have upgraded to IE8 and have done a XP
repair after Ghosting my C drive to a new computer.

To be clear here, you repaired XP *with* IE 8 installed ?
The system should only be hitting one site, either WU or MU. If it's
hitting both sites, then something is seriously amiss.

How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP if a later version of
Internet Explorer is installed
