Updates downloaded but fail to install
WinXP SP2

It all started with a failed connection to a previously USB drive (not sure
if that is even relevant--USB works for a USB-powered drive but the USB
connection to a printer & AC-powered USB drive failed on all USB ports).

As my first attempt to resolve this problem, I thought I would run Windows
Updates. They all downloaded fine, but only the Windows Installer 3.1
installed. Now, even after rebooting, none of the rest (92 others) will
install.

When I click Start -> Windows Updates, it opens two browsers: one on the MS
update page, and one with no address. Not sure if that's relevant, either.

Re: Updates downloaded but fail to install
Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you repair a Windows XP

Re: Updates downloaded but fail to install
Method1 (register wups2.dll) did the trick.

Thanks,
