RE: updates download but wont install

Try this:
start cmd.exe
net stop wuauserv
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll
net start wuauserv

Then try again. If this fails, try installing the latest WU Agent manually
from:

http://download.windowsupdate.com/Wi...one/7.2.6001.7
84/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you perform a new Windows XP
installation or you repair a Windows XP installation

See:

Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you perform a new
Windows XP installation or you repair a Windows XP installation

Do Method 1.

Re: updates download but wont install
Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1) when
posting to this newsgroup, please.

If WinXP SP2 or SP3, try Resolution Method 2 here:
