Failed installs of latest Office 2003 updates
I am having the same issue as many on this board. I am running XP Pro SP3
and Office 2003 SP3. I can't install KB's:

955439
921598
951548
948988
954464
955434

I have tried the Full file versions as well. I use a registry cleaner every
now and then and I suspect that may have erased a value that is needed in
order to install these. I have the original CD and it will still not work.
I tried to repair and reinstall Office 2003 to no avail. I tried to copy and
paste the original Office Source Engine.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
dnaRIP

This has helped many who have used registry cleaners (for others note not
for Office 2007) -
