I'm a year behind in installing MS security updates etc. When I attempt to install them, they fail consistently. I have followed many different instructions found in forums such as this, and have tried the MS Fix-It tool. Nothing has woked.

Can anyone help me?

Do they all fail, or just some? What are the exact messages that come up?

This a legal copy of XP?

Yes, it's a legal copy. The messages that come up are:

The following updates were not installed:

Try a manual download for those. Since it lists the KB numbers, you can search on the MS download site and get those.

The manual installs worked (well, 2 of the 3). Thanks for your help.
