ASUS A2H / L laptop (Celeron 2.8Ghz, 512Mb ram ~ don't laugh)
fresh install of windows
trying to do the windows update the system "seems" to stall.
It offers Express or Custom
then the progress bar appears but nothing for a long long time.
the system resources (cpu & ram) cycle through maxing out then settle down,
finally windows component needed came up
have progress sloooowly through
but I am concerned that the cpu is being pushed to 100% frequently during this update process.

do I need to be concerned?

Come-on
I said don't laugh.
I think I will close this posting as the laptop did finally do the windows updates although slow with the cpu topping out.
it seems to be ok.

thank you

That you have to wait ages? Yes.
That it will harm it? No.
