DirectShow MPEG-2
I'm trying to play various files that I've converted to different formats.
I've tried three different formats. Two of the videos play, but with no
sound. One video won't play because RealPlayer SP says it has to download
update and then it can't because "Microsoft DirectShow compatible MPEG-2
decoding software isn't installed". I have wasted a great deal of time trying
to find what I need and can't. When I found one site and tried to download it
said I didn't need it because I have SP3. I have windows xp home edition
2002, sp3. I want to play on Real PlayerSP. I never had this problem a month
ago and I don't know why it's happening now. Thank you for your help.

Not really a Windows Update question, per se...

I would say you should download/install the following things:

DivX
http://www.divx.com/
Specifically: http://www.divx.com/en/software/divx-plus/player

XViD
http://www.xvid.org/Downloads.15.0.html
Specifically: http://www.koepi.info/Xvid-1.2.2-07062009.exe

FFDshow
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/FFDshow.htm
Specifically: http://www.free-codecs.com/FFDshow_download.htm

Reboot before the first install and after each installation. You will want
to install the DiVX Web Player as well - but it should direct you to do that
as you install the player.
