    I'm new to computers and this group. I have Windows XP Pro with automatic
    update set. Automatic Update KB950749 failed to install today and yesterday.
    When I click the "failed" icon, I get error code Dx80070005. I see there are
    options to find out what is wrong - but when I try these I run into dead
    ends. For example, I see in one spot that there is no Microsoft charge for
    update issues - but elsewhere I get the message that my computer is not
    eligible for this and that there will be a $59 charge. I encountered other
    frustrations.

    Is there an easy answer to my problem?

  2. Tip: Temporarily disable real-time protection by your anti-virus and/or
    anti-spyware applications (e.g., CounterSpy, Spysweeper, Spybot, AVG
    Anti-Spyware) and/or any third-party firewall (e.g., ZA) before attempting
    to install the update(s). If you disable a third-party firewall, do NOT
    connect to the internet without having the Windows Firewall enabled!

    See if you can install it manually:
