Re: Windows update failure
Ignore the title and see if this helps - Updates are not installed successfully from
Windows Update, from Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you repair a
Windows XP installation
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

Otherwise post to the WU Newsgroup.
(OE newsreader)
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof....windowsupdate
or

PS - Hardware updates are best obtained from the manufacturer's site not from Windows
Update.
