    Seems like it's stuck in that mode and not installing then...maybe run IE WIndows Update and see if you can get the updates to install that way.

    I usually set mine to just notify me of important updates, then I download and install them and restart if it requires such.

    Hope that helps!

    curious - do you ever turn your rig off?

    Some updates for both XP and Vista can only be done after the OS has closed down, during the shut down process.
