Has anyone noticed initial updates for Windows XP are slow? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have used both OEM Windows XP SP3 and even created a streamlined versions with the latest updates (up to 10/1/2013). However, when running Windows Update after a fresh install it's very slow for the initial update check (up to 4 hours).  Then it finally comes back with a couple updates.  Has anyone found a fix for this issue? I tried this solution on Spiceworks, however that did not work either.  Any help is appreciated!

  • Nothing seems to be wrong. Check windowsupdate.log

    Do you see anything suspicious ?
