    Running Windows XP Home SP3
    Every update from Windows Update downloads, then the procedure ends
    reporting that it has failed to install.
    Sometimes if I then check the history, the same update shows as installed.
    Other times, it doesn't show in the history, but if I restart the procedure,
    it shows as already downloaded, and then it installs when I start the
    installation without downloading again.
    I'm not sure when this started to happen, but it was some time ago, and I
    have been living with it. Possibly when SP3 was installed back in 2008?
