Windows Update

My computer freezes when I try to access the 'product update' link at the windows update site.  Have tried reinstall of Internet Explorer, removal of existing files which enable this process - all with use of help from Microsoft.  No body seems to have the answer. RD

I would try and clean all your temp interet files.  In ie, tools, interent options, remove temporay interent files. This may be the problem.  
I would also recommend the maint. stuff,

Hope this helps.
