  2. I am sure you left out some information - but here is likely your solution:

    Try the following methods (both of them, ignore the article title) below:

    Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update,
    from Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after
    you repair a Windows XP installation

    Reboot after each method.

    Visit and do a custom scan for updates.
    If it asks you to update anything/install anything upon visiting
    (immediately) - do so and agree to things. Then continue with a CUSTOM

    Do *not* get drivers (hardware) and whether or not you get Software
    (Optional) is as it indicated - optional. Do get Critical updates.

    Come back - let us know.

  4. Is there something you wish to add or ask about?
    (If it is in the name you have chosen to post under - I don't think that is
    very clear at all and really doesn't make sense considering the conversation
    you decided to respond to as opposed to starting your own thread and
    actually utilizing a meaningful subject and message body...)
