Redoing windows update after XP reload but the exclusive item SP1 is taking so long. The open box is at present showing, download progress
1.9mb/1.9mb
the install progress bar reached the far right end over an hour ago and nothing seems to be happening.If you click the X it says if you navigate away from this page the intallation will fail so click cancel to stay on the current page.
Do I carry on waiting or is something wrong.
