    I suddenly am having problems with Microsoft Update. No matter what updates I
    try to install, they fail! It says there is a problem with my computer that
    is preventing the updates from being installed. I have tried everything I can
    think of. Please help!

    It looks like I have the same problem.
    PC wouldn't start anymore due to a file missing in system32, had to restart
    with Windows CD; worked again after that. But now I always receive teh same
    message:
    Automatic Update failed. it downloads the updates, but fails to install!
    anyone knows what to do?

  4. I downloaded XP SP3 and could not install any downloads even when I took my
    firewall down. Came here and read about issues involving SP3 and they said to
    dump it from my system and reload it, so far I have not found it again and my
    system is running like CRAP! And I have 3 hard drives over 260g!!! I sure
    wish microsoft would tell me how to fix my system now that their software has
    screwed it up!
