XP Updates fail to install.
I've downloaded the updates. There are 7 of them, but non of them will install.
I'm using the DELL notebook.
I've tried the "custom" install to do the updates one at a time but still no
success.
The updates are:-
KB950760/59/62, 951376, 951698, 923689, 890830

Did you disable your anti virus before proceeding with the install?

A short search likely would have come up with the following answer to your
issue...

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144
Try method 1 and try to update*.
If fails - try method 2 and try to update*.

If both of those methods fail...
http://www.codeplex.com/aureset
Get the tool and run it and then try to update*.

*try to update:
- Visit http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
- If it asks you to install anything before you see a selection of "Custom"
or "Express" - do so.
- Once you see the "Custom" or "Express" selection, choose "Custom".
- Scan for updates.
- When it lists what it finds - install the critical ones.
- You are generally safe doing the Optional Software Updates. I suggest
avoiding the Optional Hardware Updates completely.

Disabling the anti virus software did not help. But thanks anyway.
