For some reason on various Windows XP machines the updates are failing and these are the critical ones. A few times doing the shutdown and install updates option has resolved my issue but not all the time. The updates simply say failed and that is it and I am puzzled why critical patches are failing. I have tried deleting stuff out of the Windows Update folder and CAROOT then rebooting but no luck. I have SP 3 installed and it seems fine.
What am I missing here? Could it be spyware of some sort? I have ran scanners.
