Updates not installed
Yesterday I had to recover from a crash by running the Windows repair option.
I'm using Windows XY SP2. Now when I run Windows Update the updates
download and attempt to install but then I get a message "Some updates not
installed". Actually, none of the updates are installing. Any help on
fixing this will be much appreciated.

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

RE: Updates not installed
I think I've got it fixed.

Immediately after completing the Windows restore I was not able to update
anything. In fact IE6, present because of completing the Windows restore,
was not working so I could not even start the update application.

Automatic Update was on and it kept reporting that the install of
"WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe" failed.

So I then downloaded from the MS Download site
"WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe" and that installed. I then download
IE7 from MS Download, installed that, and that got IE working again.

Auto update and IE both could download "Windows Genuine Advantage
Tool(KB892130)" but neither could install it. Always got the message "Some
updates not installed" which was what caused me to start this thread.

Based on advice in another thread in this forum I completed a forced install
of WindowsUpdateAgent 3.0 using the /wuforce option. I did this from a
command window. I then rebooted, ran IE7, and then Windows Update. I chose
to install Microsoft Update which then downloaded and installed Windows
Genuine Advantage Tool(KB892130). Both installed with success. I then ran
Windows Update from IE7 and succeed in getting +80 uodates.

So far so good.

Well done - I always get them from the KB site - appears the safest way
these days.
Thank you for letting the group know and the method.
