So you are using a modem for the internet.

The yellow shield means that Windows is downloading security updates. If you are on dial-up than this could take time.

Here's a pic of what you should see when you open "Automatic Updates" in your Control Panel

You would put the dot into Turn Off Auto Update.

It's going to have to get them someday though....maybe trying later in evening would work best.

You can always check at Windows Updates manually, and download them to install later.

If you use Automatic, and Express, they likely will fail or disconnect with dialup.

If your computer is way behind on updates it will take quite a while. Internet Explorer 7 is out and now a Critical Update, so likely it is trying to download and install it.

One way to beat this is to take the computer to someone who is using high speed Internet, if you have a network adapter port (most fairly new machines have one) you can connect to that and get updates, scans done, update programs in just a fraction of the time as dialup.

Are you using this same computer to post here?

Can you post a Hijackthis log please....

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save Hijackthis.exe to your desktop.
  • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
  • Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
  • At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit EDIT then SELECT ALL then click EDIT and then click COPY, doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
  • Open a TechSupportGuy forum Reply window for this thread, to have ready to paste the Hijackthis log into. Click once to place the typing cursor in the reply window.
  • At the top of your TSG/browser window, hit EDIT then PASTE
  • You should see your copied Hijackthis log appear in the reply space....then, submit the reply
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Hi, After a quick scan of that log, I do not see anything wrong-

maybe it has been settled. You are using Norton Internet Security, and it adds things that the XP Service Pack 2 Security Center has already, which can complicate your life until you fully understand it.

I cannot help you change settings etc in NIS, you are using a dialup Internet connection and most everything will be slow this way- just let it be for a while, and see if the Windows Update feature starts and actually downloads something....you will have to try and remain connected, as these updates are large, and it will be some time till they are fully installed.... they are supposed to pick back up again when you dial up next time but often get wacky.

You may be seeing that it is ALWAYS trying, and that is because it just has not finished yet.
