4 Days? Wow. I never thought Windows Update would take so freaking long. It takes 10 minutes just for Windows Update to show me all the updates. Maybe it has to scan my entire computer because I'm using Windows XP?

Currently using Vista Home PRemium SP1 on my laptop, not slow or anything... maybe just reboot? (I dont know but it sounds like your vistas screwed anyway)

maybe someone is leeching your bandwidth , so your download is going painfully slowly.

well... i dont know about you, but it may be that your bandwith is throttled down somewhere...
what kind of connection do you have (dialup, dsl, fiber...) and are you wired to the box, or using wireless?

i have the sp2 beta installed, and am suprised by how "snappy" the internet is now, even though i get 200kbit down, or 20 kbyte...

Pizza-OUT

im directly linked to my cable box that has 12 mbps so i highly doubt anything is leaching that much bandwidth. besides i left my house and left it on to JUSTdownload updates (no other computers on) and came back and it had only moved 2%. :^)

do you have QoS disabled? if you do, windows update may get low priority... you may also want to check what kinds of cookes are loading in windows, try CCleaner... No link (sorry too lazy)

That was my thought. QoS settings wouldn't have anything to do with it if he's directly hooked up to a cable modem and isn't doing anything else on his computer. Reinstall Windows or do a repair.
