Updates Not Installing
I have installed SP3 and a lot of other updates, but all the sudden recently
every update that I try to install, the computer says that it can't install
them. It never says why though, doesn't give me an error number or anything,
just says there is a problem that is keeping it from installing them. Any
ideas as to what I can do to get them to work or find out why they aren't
working?

Two things to try (ignore any article titles - do any suggested methods...)

1) http://www.codeplex.com/aureset

2) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

Re: Updates Not Installing
I have the same problem as the original poster. I tried your 1st solution -
now none of the updates that were showing before show up let alone install.
Why are none of the Office 2003 updates i needed not showing up now? Has this
stuffed up things?
THanks in advance.

Visit http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and do a custom scan... (You may
have some preliminary installs to do before you can do a custom scan...)

Install the Microsoft update stuff...

Don't do the hardware updates.
