RE: microsoft updates fail
I finally found that there is issues with the server if you have windows xp.
I tried to fix via help and support, and did what it said. There is also
issues with different update programs, I followed the start run and
regedit, and when to the registry and changed the administrators value
databox from the one, and changed it to zero. If you have more than one
administrator also it gets confused and supposedly it will download on a
guest account. I finally wrote down all the updates....kb_____ and
downloaded them in the update catalog one by one, but they are done now.
