Hello Gnomies,

Occasionally I see a yellow shield in the task bar. When I point at it with the mouse it always says "downloading 0%" and never higher than 0. If I double click/right click nothing happens. It won't tell me what it is or what it's supposed to be downloading. Eventually it goes away (5 - 10 minutes)
I know when windows update runs I get a pop up telling me what it's doing so I'm thinking this is something else. I have run virus and several different spyware scans and there is nothing there.
I have already downloaded and installed the latest updates so that shouldn't be it. Is this Windows doing something?
I run XP Home and have automatic updates.

Thanks for the help.

Not to worry - I get it all the time. Windows checking for updates for itself or Windows Defender.

Ok, Sir Patio, we're way off the thread topic, but I have to share this:

Grail

Now I'm running away!

perhaps window's updates is haning because it's malfunctioning some how. Try using something to see if you can repair it. Try the batch file on theshadow's webpage
