WGA Notifications stops at "Finishing Installation" from behind Proxy RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications downloaded with the most recent Windows Update stops at "Finishing Installation" at about the time previous editions would ask for the proxy information. 

    From reading the forum: 

    I have gone to the diagnostics website, run the diagnostics, everything is OK.  Validated Windows from the website.  WGA starts up again at the next boot.

    As suggested to one person recently, I downloaded the WindowsXP-KB905474-ENU-x86 file.  It ran through the process completely, validated the copy of Windows.  However, WGA still starts up with every boot.

    The only thing I can think of is that the WGA that is stuck stops at the place where it should ask for proxy authentication.

    Any suggestions
