Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1) when
posting to this newsgroup, please.

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

That doesn't provide the information we need. Please go to the Start Menu and
select Run. Type

winver

into the box and press OK. Take a screenshot of the "About Windows" box that
appears and post it here, or type out everything it says on the line between
"Microsoft (R) Windows" and "Copyright (C) 1981-2001 Microsoft Corporation".

Harry.

Re: update installation failed..
[To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you include all of previous
message(s) in your replies to the newsgroup. Thank you.]

You're running WinXP SP1: You must be running WinXP SP2 or WinXP SP3 to be
able to install updates.

============================
NB: You will want to print the following instructions or copy/paste into
Notepad for offline reference!

1. Download & save to your desktop:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...8-1e1555d4f3d4

2. Read & heed:
http://msmvps.com/blogs/harrywaldron...tallation.aspx

3. Logged in as Administrator, if necessary, double-click on the saved file
to install WinXP SP3. [Yes, you can skip SP2.] Follow all prompts, be
patient, and reboot twice.

4. Do Resolution Method 2 here (trust me):
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

5. Go to Windows Update | Install any required software then click on
CONTINUE | Select CUSTOM and scan | Install any critical security updates
offered. Again, follow all prompts.

[I do NOT recommend installing IE7 via Windows Update.]

6. Make certain that Automatic Updates is enabled; cf.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306525

Addtional References:

Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
Windows XP, but only for Service Pack 3 (SP3), until 14 Apr-09. Chat and
e-mail support is available only in the United States and Canada. Go to
http://support.microsoft.com/oas/def...spx?gprid=1173 | select "Windows
XP" then select "Windows XP Service Pack 3"
