Cannot Install Updates in Windows XP Pro
After serveral years with XP Home Edition, I recently updated to XP Pro.
When running Microsoft Update, I get a list of required updates. I am able
to download them and verify them, but they will not install. They ALL fail
almost immediately. Any ideas what might be happenning? Did I miss some
settings.

Thanks for the help.

Re: Cannot Install Updates in Windows XP Pro
I found the solution at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144.

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you repair a Windows XP
installation

Might I ask why you upgraded from Home to Professional?

Did you need the domain joining ability, the encryption or just more (easier
really) control over the users?
