WGA KB892130 failure and total Windows Update failure

    I recently sat down to update a computer purchased and installed a few months
    ago. It has XP Media Center and had every update possible applied at the
    time of installation. I noticed that there were over 30 updates that had not
    been performed, even though the system had been set to automatically do so.

    I went to Microsoft Update, and the WGA tried to run. It refused to
    install. All the other updates also refused to install.

    I then researched the Web and found a manual link to download the WGA tool.
    I did so and it installed. However, still no other updates will install. I
    have also shut off the AVG anti-virus to no effect. The only other
    background tool running is Windows Defender, and the system is using the
    Windows firewall. This is a very simple installation with few added programs.

    I have also run the WG2Diag tool per some of the other comments here which
    did not help, although it validated the install.

    Almost every machine I regularly use now has a problem in Windows Update,
    most around the .Net update disaster listed all over the Web.

    Windows Update at the moment appears to be a disaster like nothing I have
    ever seen prior. Offering WGA installs which then break to machines that
    have repeatedly ALREADY been validated is a joke.

    Assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

    The error message is that 31 updates have been downloaded and are ready to
    install, and then they all immediately fail to install.

  4. Okay, the error *code* is?

    I get a panel saying "the follwoing updates were not installed:
    Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB947864)

    There is no error code, and frustratingly no reason for the failure given.
