Updates will not install
Hi All,
I run XP sp2. Recently I tried to install new motherboard drivers but the
installation failed and I ended up doing a windows repair. That all worked
well but now I can't install any windows updates. They all download but none
will install.
I got IE7 directly outside of windows update and that installed ok. It
would not install through windows update.
Can anyone help me please.
Thankyou in advance.
Buster

Re: Updates will not install
As posted in replies 20-30 times a week in this newsgroup...

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

NB: Also applies to clean installs, upgrade installs, and Recovery installs.

Re: Updates will not install
Sounds like you are not having a good day but thanks for your response.
I did do a check on previous posts but couldn't find anything similar to my
problem after a windows repair but maybe I was using the wrong search words.
Anyway I'll check that out when I get home tonight and see how I go.
Thanks
Buster
