    The following updates can be downloaded but will not install (have
    tried 4 times)

    1. KB 828741
    2. KB 837001
    3. KB 835732

    Any clue what could be wrong?
    Is it possible that they do not install because I have various services
    disabled?


    BTW, When I go to the page to manually download these critical updates
    I notice that their size is a multiple of the sizes indicated on the
    windowsupdate site. How come?

    I noticed this problem too yesterday. I was blocking the updater EXE
    files during the installation. Don't block them, let them access the
    Internet. I found out that they are installers to download more stuff
    from the Internet. Hence, why they fail.

    They do install now after disabling my FW (Kerio).
    As far as I remember this is the first time on win xp that I needed to
    disable my FW for a successful installation of security patches.
