    updates will not install (xp home)

    A friend says that her windows updates will not install - they download but will not update. She has tried to reregister all of the recommended DLL files but that has not worked. Any other suggestions.

    Have your friend go to Windows Update and Review the update history. See if there are any error codes.

    Not sure what you mean by "go to Windows Update" ? Where exactly? And how do we review the update history. Sorry for being dense.

    Start Internet Explorer. Windows Update should be under Tools. When that web page opens on the left side there should be an entry to review the update history.
