Some updates could not be installed
I recently upgraded from Windows XP Home (SP2) to Windows XP Professional. It
went fine, but ever since Windows updates have downloaded but not installed.
It tried to install them, but gives up with the message 'Some updates could
not be installed'. I've restarted the machine quite a few times since. I
haven't tried searching for the individual KB IDs for the updates as there
are over 70 of them.

The Windows Update log file ends with the error 0x80004002 (which appears
quite a few times, presumably once for each time it tried to update) but also
contains the error 800704dd several times.

Also a free prog. called "dial-a-fix", will sort out your download prob.and
some others if you need,.....

Go ahead and download Dial-a-fix.
http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix


Reboot into safe mºde (F-8)


Click the green checkmark and click Go.

After it has finished,


Reboot


Can you go to Windows Update, select Express (Get high-priority updates),
and apply all offered updates

RE: Some updates could not be installed
That solution worked for me!

Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
b. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
net stop wuauserv

2. Register the Wups2.dll file. To do this, follow these steps:a. At the
command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll
Note For a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition,
type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll
b. Click OK on each verification message that you receive.

3. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, type the following
command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
net start wuauserv
4. Exit the command prompt. To do this type exit, and then press ENTER.



Thanks
