Windows Update has stopped working.  Got a new Win 8 Machine and put my Dell XPS410 as  backup/MS Flight Sim Box.  Went to add updates today and it hung.  After running it for over an hour, Nothing happened.  Just to make sure I updated MS IE Ver 8 with the latest security patch, but nothing seems to work.  It just sits there.  I  know that XP goes out of support next month, but I would like to get the latest updates.

Any ideas

Been on travel for a few days.  The Fixit seemed to work fine.  Not having any issues now. Seemed like a simple fix, but you deserve the points for knowing where to look.

Thanks
