windows Update not working?

Is windows update not working for anyone else at the moment.  It just locks up IE when I go to the page.  Also can't register my WinXP.

Just used it to update one of my W2K3 VPCs. Worked fine.

You know, if you're using the well know cracked key for Windows XP, you're locked out of Windows Update as well as service packs. Hope that's not the case. ;)

I'm using the Windows XP that I recieved with my MSDN subscription.  Maybe I should try reinstalling it.

That's the only thing that fixed it for me.  (Doing the "upgrade" over the existing install.)  Check out:
