Brand new laptop with Vista Home Premium.
Started fine, went thru set up.
Windows Update worked fine, updated everything till it came back NO UPDATE FOUNDS.
Installed Office 2007.
Went to Windows Update. It showed 15 new updates needed. Clicked INSTALL NOW... the window stopped responding, nothing happened.
The update icon in the tray showed 1% but never advanced.
The only way to get rid of the WINDOWS UPDATE was thru TASK MANAGER.
Now when I try it (re booted too) the WINDOWS UPDATE window opens but is is transparent, I can see thw wallpaper behind it, and can't get it to work at all. TASK MANAGER is the only way to get rid of it. Also when I use TASK MANAGER to stop the process, I get an EXPLORER STOPPED WORKING message, then it says it is restarting EXPLORER, and everything is fine after that (well, except Windows Update).
I can web surf, message, use Office, etc. No other issues with lap top. But WINDOWS UPDATE is hosed, freezes/hangs every time now.
