Got the problem solved. I clicked on the Administrative Options. Its
response was that a service wasn't registered correctly and offered to fix
it. I have now installed Microsoft Update and two updates. I have been able
to start the download and installation of 74 updates.
I regularly install SP3 without SP2.
Thanks for all that read the post.
