1.windows update keeps scanning for new updates but does not display

windows update keeps scanning for new updates with no results. It scans for 
hours at a time and never displays anything. Is there a way to fix this 
problem or get the recommended updates for windows xp my self ? 

2.Windows Update keeps on scanning

When i try to update, and choose either custom or express, my computer is 
being scanned. But that's all that happens. It keeps on scanning without ever 
reaching a conclusion...

Any thoughts ?

3.Windows Update keeps scanning and won't load

I've been using Windows update for several years now without any problems 
(Win XP Home SP2, IE 7) but when I tried to use it today, regardless of 
whether I chose Automatic or Custom Updates, it just kept "scanning [my] 
computer for updates" and never loaded the actual list of available updates.

I have tried this several times already, all with the same result, and have 
let the page load for up to 15 minutes, whereas the process took around 30 
seconds previously, so I am quite certain that there must be a fault of some 
kind. I have not, however, received any error messages - the updates list 
just kept loading/scanning my computer indefinitely - and so all the KB 
articles were useless to me.

P.S.

On a vaguely related note, is it true that there is now a Windows XP Service 
Pack 3?

Thanks in advance!

4.Microsoft Update Keeps Scanning For Updates....

...and doesn't end.

I've already gone through the re-registering of all applicable WU*.DLL 
components - rebooted - and it's still not fixed.

Anybody have any ideas on how to fix this continuous scanning that never ends?

Thanks...

Andy
