Windows update problems...
I get to windowsupdate >>
http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us >> and then my browser hangs. CPU usage hits 100% and prety much stays there. SVChost.exe / or at least one instance of it / takes up most of that ; about 98%.

I have WIN xp SP1 installed on top of an update to Win98. This is a new 4-gB drive installed today, after a complete meltdown of the old hard drive. Admittedly I have just 256mB RAM installed, I guess more would help, but is that the reason why Update isn\t playing nicely? Before the meltdown, the RAM was sufficient for my needs, though I wasn\t trying to do WinUpdates.
Basically, this machine / an IBM T22 ThinkPad / is almost unusable, and as I wanna hand it over as a birthday gift to my daughter today, in a safe state, I\d really appreciate some help.
Cheers in advance.
