    Updates (Win XP sp2)

    I am trying to install several updates on my laptop, and when I do the update page says it fails. It doesn't give any number or reference to help troubleshoot, it just says "Failed" I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas as far as common reasons this error would occur.

    I haven't been there to try lately, but have you tried downloading the updates rather than installing on the fly?

    Can you try one at a time to isolate which is really the problem?

    Yes, I have tried downloading one at a time. I even tried restarting the pc and downloading one update, but it just says failed.
