Hanging installing windows update
I am trying to get my wifes computer which is running XP to download and
install the windows updates. Finally got the computer to connect to the
update site, the site got to the part where it says it needs to update the
updater(?) so I clicked on "Download and Install Now" and a window pops up
and says "installing updates". Then nothing. No progress at all. What do I
need to do?

As I was sitting here it completed and said the updates failed. Am I
missing something?

RE: Hanging installing windows update
You can download it yourself, see:

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
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

Ignore Title - use method 2.

Reboot.
