I've got a new problem within the last three days. Windows update had failed on the last two PC's that I"ve setup. One is a Dell Dell system and the other I've reformatted and reloaded Windows on in preparation for redeployment.
On both systems, I've gone to Windows update and downloaded updates. They appear to download OK, but the fail to install. Have looked at logs and tried to get the systems to allow the download again, but they think the updates are still there. At one time we we renamed the folders were the temporary files for the updates reside so they downloaded again, but they failed to install a second time.
This is a strange one because there are no error messages or numbers in the log so don't know where to go for a solution or why. This happened on both PC's after a successful update to Windows XP Service Pack 3. On both PC's I was able to go to the download site and download and install IE 7.0 successfully.
Does any one have any ideas on what might have happened in the last few days with MS to result in this inability to download and install? I've followed the same steps numerous times as late as ten days ago very successfully.
Thanks for your help, Judy
