Microsoft Windows Updates will not install
Windows XP 32-Bit sp3, Autoupdates on

I can download the updates fine, but they will not install. Have 7 in the
que. Never had this problem before. Says "Problem with your computer....
installation failed."

I tried the troubleshooting techniques to update the autoinstaller. Did not
work. What else can it be?

RE: Microsoft Windows Updates will not install
I have seen this symptom on *all* of my computers when Office 2007 SP2 was
one of the updates waiting to be installed.

Deselect everything except for Office 2007 SP2, let that install, then the
rest should install without a problem.

If you see IE8 and want to install, install that last, by itself.
