Windows (not) Update(ing)

Windows Update annoyed me a little this morning. Although there are no critical updates currently available for download, there was a ‘Microsoft Processor Device Driver’ update, to version 5.1.2600.28. Despite it downloading fine (it was only 32KB), when it came to installing it, it sat there for well over 5 minutes, churning away at the CPU, before saying it had failed. Great.
And this was after installing no less than two ActiveX updates just to get into the Windows Update site.
