Both of those (auto update and BITS) were already enabled when i went to check.
When it freezes, the page seems to start loading - going blank as if to show the next page - then it just stops. the address bar, taskbar, everything up top freezes as well, and you would see parts of the page underneath through random spots in the gray areas. I can't minimize or close the page.
But I still have mouse and keyboard control and can still click to another minimized item, which works normally (ie., i can click on a minimized web browser page and i can click on things on it or visit other webpages.) However, clicking back on the windows update browser brings me back to the blank white page.
