So I'm visiting my parents for the holidays and taking care of standard maintenance on my mother's computer. While trying to run Microsoft Update, I click "Custom" and get the window saying "Please wait while we locate the relevant updates..." and the scrolly bar. And I wait. And wait. Trying to upgrade to IE7 results in the same problem (infinite wait during the installation process). Ditto updating definitions in Windows Explorer. Ideas?

OK, I cleaned out the Windows Update log and the Prefetch folder. No luck. More suggestions?
