RE: Fails to install updates after Downloading
Presumably you are running on an .x86 system (you can find out if this is so
by typing in "dxdiag" on the "start/run" command on the taskbar (this will
tell you all about your system)) If this is the case, you can then copy the
kb number(include the letters kb) and add the following to it .x86. e.g.
KB943649 .x86 copy/paste into the search box and select dowloads from the
drop down box. This should then take you to the download center with the
correct download for an .x86 based system. Select run and it should install
ok. Do the same for the rest of the failed downloads.

Re: Fails to install updates after Downloading
Insert your Office 2003 CD into the appropriate drive bay before attempting
to install those updates again.

If you don't have the CD, see these KB articles (ignore the titles):

You receive an "Installation Error: File not Found" or "Error 0x51F" error
message when you try to update Office 2003 programs from the Office Update
Web site or the Office Download Center
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/875556

Office updates are not successfully installed if you deploy updates by using
Windows Server Update Services or the Microsoft Update Web site after the
path of the local installation source changes
