    hey, i downloaded (manually) some updates for xp like office updates and security updates but i DID NOT get sp2.

    and now, everytime i startup my computer, the little windows logo is in the taskbar and it says "downloading: 0%"

    i can't make it stop. i can't right click it, left click it, etc

    ALSO, i was just wondering if someone could tell me how to stop it or what name it has in the TASK manager so that i could stop it/block it/ or something like that

    thanks

    all you have to do to disable it is go into control pannel and then into auto update and disable auto updates

    wow, that was a little too easy

    any idea what it was...to make it download updates at 0% even after leaving it on all night??? (p.s. i know my connection is fine)
