RE: windows updates won't install
I currently have the same problem. (Windows XP SP2)

I upgraded my m/b, cpu, video card... and Windows had a fit! :-) So I
used my original Windows install disk to run a repair, which took about 30
minutes and seemed to "reinstall" Windows.

Afterward, I went to Windows Update and received 84 updates. All downloaded
but none would install. I would get a message saying that they all failed.

This continues despite reboots and the like.

Re: windows updates won't install
Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you repair a Windows XP
installation:
