Windows XP stops responding when you download updates from Windows Update:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/831429
or

XP-based computer
0x80004005
0x80090006

[stoopid KB Advanced Search: Why don't either of those come up when you
search on "8007007e"?! Well, it looks more official now, at least. <sigh> ]

Hi TaurArian,

Thanks, this fixed the problem, I re-installed SP2.
I could then download updates, tho they wouldn't install.
I found the fix for not installing on another microsoft help page
Thanks

Richard
