Beta testing of V5 of Windows Update was completed recently and I believe is likely in use now for those using WinXP. The appearance is quite different from before.
Personally, I have always found it much faster to manually download from Windows Update, rather than use the automatic update feature in Windows.
Demand for SP2 will be great, so M$ may also take awhile delivering it to everyone.
Using OS:XP and IE6 Getting message there are Critical Updates for my pc and its SP2.. it ask if i want to download and install this Update,,but when i click OK it does nothing,disappears..so i go to Windows Updates and scan and it says the same thing,one critical update SP2,i click ok and it disappears again...also,, has MS changed the look of the Windows Update page?..mine sure is diffrent in appearance then before.
