I just did I clean install of Win XP Pro and when I go to the Windows update site for "critical updates" the computer is very slow to finish the scan and then will hang if you click on any of the "review and install" sections. It appears that it is attempting to pull up the next page then it times out (after about 3 minutes) and I get the generic "could not find web page". I have DSL and my connection is fine. This is only when trying to pull files from windows update. This is my 3rd clean install. I have also tried it after downloading and installing SP1a and had the same problem at windows update. I would greatly appreaciate any help. Since someone is bound to ask: This is a legitimit copy of XP Pro and not one using the warez key.
