windows updates failing download?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.security_admin (More info?)

Critical Update for Office XP on Windows XP SP2 (KB885884) and Microsoft
GDI+ Detection Tool (KB873374) keep failing via ms windows update site? I
tried several times. The download fails. Other updates installed fine
though. Anyone else run into this?

I have XP Pro SP2 with all the latest updates except these 2.

any input would be appreciated. thanks.
