The updates to my Windows 2k Server download fine but when I try to
install them either from the website or taskbar, it fails and gives me
this message.
Updates were unable to be successfully installed.

Any ideas?

This might also shed more information...

Check your ActiveX components (Tools > Internet Options > Settings > View objects) look for anything that issnt installed. things like dammaged and unknown. all of these objects should be easly readable. if you have any that are random number letter combinations remove them.  if you are useing Windows Vista it is Tools > internet options > Settings (in browseing history) > View objects
