    I had problems yesterday. I know there's been a few patches released, could just be busy.

    Nope, no problem here. Might just be a whole bunch of people rushing to get the latest security updates which is causing congestion on the MS update website.

    Thank god for that. I was a little worried that the installation went wrong. By the way win 2000 seems to run better than xp does. Farcry runs so much smoother.

    They've added 5 security updates recently. I haven't touched them yet. Just waiting a few days longer while every other person rushed to download it first. :)

    I saw 5 new updates, was a bit hanging, when i first tried to download the 3.1 meg of updates, dunno why, maybe they're being attacked again.
