    Windows Updates (XP(SP2))

    Hi all,

    I have upgraded a windows 2000 machine to Windows XP Professional, I then went to microsoft update website to do all the neccessary updates, I was able to download all the updates but, all fail in the installation process. It does not give me any error codes or messages, it just says [Failed] on all the updates.

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Go to Windows/Microsoft Update and select "Review your update history". Click on one of the read X's for more details.
