    Re: windows update just seems to hang while checking.

    Back in November I wiped off my Mom's old computer so that she could give it away and put Vista back on it. I ran it for 2 days trying to get updates after installing the manual updates and it still didn't find anything so I gave up and left that for the next owner. Other than those manual updates all I got on it was sp2 and IE9 both of which I did using manual downloads. M$ has screwed something up somewhere and they don't care to fix it. Dare I say that it might be intentional?
