Re: Updates pausing



You're mowst welcome. You can get XP to install the already downloaded Security updates by clicking Start > Run > type in
wuauclt
Click OK or press Enter
At the very least, the Security updates should now install and the system will not have to wait for non-security content to be downloaded.
You could also choose Shutdown from the Start Menu and that will also offer Install updates on Shutdown. You can tell by the Automatic Update icon overlay on Shutdown and the link under the Shutdown options gives you the opportunity to shut the system down *without* installing downloaded updates.

Updates are not downloaded or the “Automatic Updates” icon does not display the status of downloads when you enable the Automatic Updates service
