My dowloading updates icon has been in my system tray for quite a while but never shows any progress. It continues to show 0%.

I read elsewhere in this forum that it may be a firewall setting but I have received other XP updates successfully with no change to the firewall.

Can anyone offer any help?

Hello and welcome to TSF

Alot of the time it is allot slower to downland the updates using the Windows Automatic updates. Click on the link below, and try doing the updates form the Microsoft website.


Also what firewall are you running?
