Unable to install s/w d/loaded via Windows Update (Dual-booting sy
I have recently had my laptop configured for dual booting with Vista (on the
C: drive) and XP Pro SP2 (on the D: drive)

While using the Automatic Updates to update the XP Pro SP2, I had a problem
installing all updates after they had successfully been downloaded onto the
computer.

No specific error code was highlighted. The error message below was shown :
"Problem: A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being
downloaded or installed.
Solution: To fix the problem, try installing the updates again. If that
doesn't work, use the Troubleshooter to try solve the problem."

Any one knows how to resolve this?

P.S. No problems using Windows update on the Vista platform.
