I am running a virtualized CentOS 6.3 on a Windows 7 computer. The computer (4 GB RAM) is connected to a corporate network.

When I run yum update, it shows some progress, then eventually the VM (2 GB RAM) freezes, this has happened nearly 5 times now.

I've also tried updating using the graphic package manager, same thing happens, any ideas why this is happening?

Have you tried yum clean all first? –  nojak Aug 24 '12 at 2:15
