Windows Updates won't install for XP.....

    I'm on Parallel 3 with a macbook and I've got XP Pro installed. For some reason, Windows Security updates for XP will not install.

    I can get the updates going and it shows that updates are "initializing" but then the progess bar won't go past the first beginning green light. It gets stuck there for some reason.

    Pulling out and restarting XP (in an effort to help things get going) doesn't seem to help or make any difference.

    I appreciate any guidance or help on this. Btw, I have downloaded Acrobat Reader successfully and installed it, so I don't think this is a firewall blockage issue, although I could be wrong.

    Many Thanks, Frank B.
