Windows updates will not install
Last night I reinstalled XP pro, then installed SP2 and sucessfully
downloaded and installed SP3. When I ran auto update this morning I find
that 18 updates have downloaded but every time I try to install the updates
within 30 seconds I am presented with a message 'The following updates did
not install' and the lists all 18 updates:

Security Update for Flash Player (KB923789)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB938464)
Realtek AC'97 Audio
Security Update for Windows XP (KB951748)
Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 for Windows XP (KB953838)
Security Update for Outlook Express for Windows XP (KB951066)
Update for Windows XP (KB952287)
Update for Windows XP (KB951072)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB950762)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB951698)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB950974)
Update for Windows XP (KB951978)
Windows Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP
Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - September 2008 (KB890830)
Cumulative Security Update for ActiveX Killbits for Windows XP (KB953839)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB946648)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB952954)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB951376)

I am not given any error codes or any explanation as to why the updates
failed to install. SP3 was fine so why not these ?

I need to go on to install MS Office plus all my other software but don't
really want to until all security updates have been installed.

RE: Windows updates will not install

I had the same problem myself yesterday. I found out how to fix it on my
computer. The resolution was to re-register Windowa Update DLL.

On your computer, click START, click RUN, type cmd. and then click ok
Type the following commands and press enter after EACH command (there is a
space right after the 32 in each command)

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll
regsvr32 wuweb.dll

Once I did this, I started the update a gain and it worked. I hope this
helps you!

RE: Crazy!
It´s absolutely crazy that a large corporation like Microsoft doesn´t tell
people about this. There must be millions of users out there who can´t
install these important updates. And as usual (in my opinion) the help menu
in Windows XP doesn´t help. There is no reference to the error message: Some
of the updates failed to install.

Than you very much, Pat.

Updates will not install
I am having the same problem. Rebuilt my HP laptop from scratch. Updated to SP3 and now I can't install any more updates, nor can I install Windows Live programs.

I am thinking it may either be a SP3 snafu... the updates are not compatible with changes made to the OS, or it's an OS authentication roadblock... their integrated anti-piracy bot doesn't recognize the install as legitimate yet.

I am going to hunt around on the windows site and see if it's an OS registration problem and try and narrow down the problem.

You may want to read the whole thread. And yes, you may also want
to use a newsreader software (i.e. Outlook Express, Thunderbird etc.)
to read and reply to postings from newsgroups. Don't use your silly
Webinterface which claims to be a forum but is only mirroring these
postings in newsgroups.

Bye,
Freudi
