XP refuses to install windows updates.
Posted on 2007-07-24
Ok, I have a dell computer (Dimension 3000) that I recently replaced the motherboard on. After replacing the motherboard I performed a clean install of WindowsXP Home SP2. All was well, I installed drivers and a few applications. However when I go to download and install the latest windows updates it will detect and download all 75 of'em but when it goes to install them every single update fails! I've even manually installed IE7, but same problem. I've had the exact same problem on an HP computer where I replaced the motherboard as well. This problem is driving me crazy and I cant figure it out, stupid Windows just doesnt give me anything to run with, I mean it just says "updates failed" and expects you to just live with it. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, thanx in advance :D
