I have a problem. When I turn the computer on I can access and browse the internet (IE7) with no problems. If I run windows update Start - Programs - Windows Update, I can get to the first page, but once I select either express OR custom, the computer seems to dump the internet connection. It will eventually time out and give me the "this page cannot be displayed" message.

Attempts to open Internet Explorer thereafter also meet the same fate. I have to restart the machine to regain connectivity. The use of the windows tool to check the internet connection once the problem occurs gives me the 12007 error which has been described in other threads.

I have not encountered any other website that causes the same problem.

Running XP Pro SP2/Asus Motherboard P5WD2-Premium/ Bios revision 0606/Intel P4 processor/ OS stored on Western Dig 32 gig 10,000 rpm drive/ Raid 5 array for bulk storage.

Can anyone help suggest anything that might help?

Thanks in advance
