RE: automatic updates fail to install
Yes, this helped me with my problem. I recently formatted my pc and put my XP
sp3 pro back on, and after a few (successfully installed) windows updates it
started downloading critical updates but failed when atempting to install
them. After some testing i also noticed that if i removed any installed
update from add or remove programs and let windows update install them again,
they where also downloaded but not installed. In the windowsupdate.log file i
have several "0x80004002" errors.
In my case when i tried to install the "WindowsXP-KB927891-v3-x86-ENU.exe"
it said that "setup has detected that the service pack version of this system
is newer than the update you are aplying". so i skipped it and installed the
"WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" with the /wuforce in the end. And after a
reboot it installed all the downloaded windows updates.

Hope this helps other ppl as well.
