A lot of these are unnecessary to be running on every start up.
On the Services tab will also be a list of many that can be prevented from running and my bet is that
one of them, could well be the DivX update or the Nvidia Managment is stopping the computer from shutting down.
Disable the AVG and the turn off the pop up blocker in IE8 and then go to this link and see how you go for updates

I did as you asked and it came up like it should but then it displayed this message:
We need to open a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer

You can still install updates for your 64-bit version of Windows. However, you need to use a 32-bit version of the browser to view the website.

When I clicked to open the 32-bit version it told me this:
Message from webpage
error = -2146827859

So I tried to copy and paste the link in a 32-bit version of IE and it hung on the load page again and when it does that the only way to close the page is Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

I forgot that the link was from my computer and I run 32 bit.
Keep AVG disabled. Keep pop-up blocker OFF in IE8.
In YOUR IE8 go to Microsoft Updates and see what happens.

I am going to sign off for tonight I will be back about 2000hrs.
Before I go do this please.
1. Click the Safety button on the IE8 screen, top right next to Tools.
Click Delete browsing history. Ensure that Passwords is NOT checked.
Delete Temp Internet Files, Cookies and Browsing History. ESPECIALLY IF YOU have not done it recently since your reinstall.
2. Go back to msconfig and disable on Startup
Adobe Reader Speed Launch
HP Digital Imaging Monitor
HP Photosmart Premier Fast Start
Microsoft Office
Logitech . Product Registration
LWS
HPWuSchd2
DivXUpdate
jusched
nTuneCmd
Whilst in msconfig click the Services tab and click to check the box "Hide all Microsoft Services".
The click to uncheck ANY of the above and any others that you KNOW you do NOT need running automatically.
Click of course to Apply on both and then OK
You will when you restart receive a message that start up configuration has been changed with an option NOT to show that message again. Click to check that box.
You may be surprised at how more smmothly XP loads and shuts down.

I was wondering if I should leave AVG disabled. Do you think it is conflicting with my system and if so do you have a suggestion for a different AntiVirus? Thanks
