Default How do I get Microsoft Update to work?

My Microsoft Update doesn't work. It keeps getting stuck where there is the green bar scrolling around looking for updates. Does anybody know how to fix this? By the way, I have had this problem since I installed XP on my machine.

For some reason, it just worked right now. Up until now I have been using other ways to download the updates so it's annoying. I'd just like to know why it does this.

You can look in log for error, file might be a hidden file, not on mine tho.
C:\Windows\Windows Update.log
