Not much information.

What about custom installation from the http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
?
Have you performed a clean/repair install lately?

Same issue for me, and yes I did a repair install today. Now with 86

Looks like you searched and found your own solution. That's good.

For those curious as to why I asked and likely what Discoduck found (I
removed the no archive that Discoduck put in the above response and copied
Discoduck's response and added the full response below so the solution would
be archived for searches again...) - Here it is once more (searches work
great!):

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

Can't figure that out?

Get Dial-a-Fix:
http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix

Use its options to fix:
- Windows Installer
- Windows Update
- All the Registration Center options.

Turn off the "Empty System32\Catroot 2"
Do NOT do "Flush SoftwareDistribution".

Then click "GO" and wait until it is done... Reboot will be needed.

- Download/Install Windows Update v3.

http://download.windowsupdate.com/Wi...gent30-x86.exe
(You *may* need to install it using the command line switch "/wuforce"
right after the reboot - immediately after logging in.)

- Download/Install the 927891 patch.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...9-404327772E5A

- Reboot.

- Visit http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and scan for/install updates.

- Come back and let us know how things went!

Mary,

Something to add or did you mistakenly reply and hit "Send" instead of
cancel when you decided to not type anything? ;-)
