    Hi all,

    Computer is: an AMD Athlon XP 2400+ 2.01 GHz with 1GB of Ram

    With Microsoft Windows XP Home with service pack 2

    Using Microsoft Office XP P professional 2002, and Outlook for mail.

    when I go to shut down I get a message that updates will be installed and
    then the computer will shut down, but the install does not finish no matter
    how long it is left, even 24 hours.

    can I cancel the install so it downloads them again, if yes how please,

    Not sure, but try running "windows update" manually.

    Link to WU should be on your start menu, and in the "tools" menu in
    Internet Explorer.
