After the Live Update download, there is a "finish" process that begins.
It's taking longer and longer to complete, today about 15-20 minutes. It
used to be quick, a few minutes at most. Plenty of room on the hard drive,
plenty of free RAM on my computer. I wonder if there is an update file, or
cache that has become too large in size and needs to be deleted. Does
anyone know about this?

Running Win2000. I'm perfectly happy with this older version as long as it
can take the live updates, so thanks, but I'm not going to go to a newer
more bloated version.

You have at least 4 free products to replace it (other than the firewall
thing).

For just the AV software, not any firewall, I like the freeware
"Comodo Antivirus" which on XP works fine and is very comprehensive,
perhaps a bit too aggressive with false positives but better safe than
sorry, and you can always overrule the software suggestion. Actual I
allowed it to quarantine a microsoft file relating to the language bar
and had no ill effects (the language bar escaped the quarantine and
appeared the next time I booted up).
