Cannot get any MS updates to install

I have windows xp and have tried downloading and installing updates to no avail.  It only says the update was unable to install.  I have Administrator rights on the user account (the only user account).

I have even tried installing 1 update only and that does not work.

The event viewer for Applications has a whole bunch of Msiinstaller Error events (1024 and 10005) showing after the updates fail.

Not sure how to resolve these.

Thanks in advance.

Try to upgrade to newer version of windows installer from Microsoft website and see if it helps you in this case.

Another solution is to turn on automatic updates and see if it downloads the updates and installs it.

Try System File Checker.
Start -> Run
Type sfc /scannow
This will repair/replace any corrupted Windows files.

More on that here:

1.      you need a full Windows disc to use this tool.
2.      in Windows 98 and 2000, just type sfc - you don't need the /scannow part.
3.      sfc is not installed with Windows Me but is available as a download from Uncle Bill.

the error report said it was going to include the Msi.log file and the .xml file.  I went to the location and viewd it.  It had a bunch of lines like this.  Does this help?:

Answer partially provided my MS support.  They had me run the full program version of the update and that program generated a message pointing to the Office Source Manager needed to be running.  As it was disabled on my system (dont know why it was disabled), I started it and the updates ran fine.

Thanks
