    Like alot of people I have had problems with the virus
    I finally have everything back to normal except for one
    thing. When I try to update at the Windows Update,
    the process hangs after I click on "review and install updates"
    It changes to the page where you need to click on the
    "Install now" button but the button is greyed out and
    Internet Explorer stops responding. I have to go to
    the task manager to end the process.
    I have ran virus detection software and I am clean
    according to them. I did manage to download the patch for
    the worm and install it from a different Microsoft web page.
    I am running the XP firewall (I wasn't before)and checked
    my port at the link I got from this forum and it said I am
    "Stealth" which is ok I guess.
    Was wondering if there are any registry entrys that I can check
    that could be causing this or if ya'll think there is something
    else doing it. I read over the Microsoft page that lists a
    bunch of reasons why it hangs at the Update site but
    none were exactly like it is happening to me.
    Any help is appreciated.
