Update failure on WIN2000
I am running Win2000 SP 4 on my home-built machine, MSI K7N2 Delta
bios. Untill a couple weeks ago, I was getting updates OK. Right now,
when I try to get updates, MS finds four critical. When I try to
download and install, the machine hangs for maybe 10 minuted, then
gives me a message that the updates filed. No significant error
message. I have disabled Zonealarm and f-prot to no effect and
tried to do the upgrades from SAFE mode, also to no effect.
Suggestions please.

Re: Update failure on WIN2000
Tip: Temporarily disable real-time protection by your anti-virus and/or
anti-spyware applications (e.g., CounterSpy, Spysweeper, Spybot Tea Timer,
AVG Anti-Spyware) and/or any third-party firewall (e.g., ZA) before
attempting to install the update(s). If you disable the third-party
firewall, make certain that you enable the Windows Firewall!
