And to confuse it even further. I have yet to get even the paltry 50k
Critical Update update to download. It hangs before it gets there, and
takes over 3 minutes just to get to 40k. I am on a cable connection that
was working fine with other updates. I can get the opening pages, and the
list of software pages fairly quickly, but the data from the download just
won't come in. I've tried at midnight, 3 AM, 5 AM, 8 AM, noon, 4 pm, 6 pm,
9 pm and so and so forth and it still won't work!
Yet every other page I visit download lightning fast, and can download
multimeg files in seconds.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've tried a completely clean boot
and that didn't work either.
