Hi, again. if your problem sounds something like this...

(...Three days ago the MS update icon appeared at the
bottom right of the Windows (XP Pro) taskbar. I'm used
to this happening as I have my browser set to
automatically accept MS updates. However, it has stayed
there for the past three days and always indicates
"Downloading updates: 0%". Is there a way to get rid of
the icon?)...

then try out this solution.

I did go to the Windows Update website and the only
update it says I need is the SP2 and I dont want it. Do
you know how I can find out what update I clicked to
install cause the sp2 might be another update and might
not be why my windows update is stuck on 0%. Thanks Patty

No Im not getting any error codes. Do you know how i can
check on my pc to find out what windows download i
clicked to install because that is the program that wont
download and stuck on 0%. I still havent found a
solution. I did go the windows update and the only update
that I need is the sp2 but, I dont think is the update i
accepted to install a few days ago. Thanks Patty

I just wanted to let you know I did solve my problem.
Maybe it will help you "Julian" (I hope). I clicked to
install the sp2 update I had and then cancelled it and
that took the windows download icon off my taskbar. What
happens is that I get the updates on aol and always have
but, something with the new aol 9.0 (I think) I have will
install the updates from windows but, wont download them.
I have to go to the windows website to actually download
them. Hope this helps.

Hmm...sorry, but i'm at a loss. i dont use aol(other than
AIM), so i doubt my problem was caused by AOL installing
updates or whatever. another thing is that i already have
sp2...my system is pretty much up to date. so i'll keep
researching. PS, did you delete out the folders mentioned
in the link??
