    ===>Re-download these updates again.
    ===>Now try to install them.
    ===>If you still have an issue than try next steps..

    ===>After clicking you will get Troubleshoot computer problem window.
    ===>Here you will see the System and Security.
    ===>Under that click on Fix problem with windows update link.
    ===>After clicking the windows troubleshooter will open click on Next button.

    Hello,


    • Install updates by using Windows Updates
    • Install updates by using Microsoft Updates
    • Install updates for Microsoft Security Essentials
    • Start Windows Firewall


    Thank you.

    Invoke Command Prompt, by clicking the Start orb, and typing cmd in the search box , and pressing enter.

    Type %temp% and press enter, from the displayed list, delete all temporary files .

    Run Disk Cleanup, click start--all programs --accessories--system tools--disk cleanup, run this program to remove all sorts of junk, unused and conflicting files from windows.

    Check your system installed antivirus and firewall settings wheather it is cteating any issue against the updates considerating them as potential harmful programs, disable for some time and then update if that works.

    Try those methods and finally Repair the Windows XP using the original installer disk.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.............

    1.The update may be not compatible with your Windows OS.

    2.Or this may be the problem of your bad server.

    3.Or check it first before downloading any update.

    4.Or this can be the problem of the network drivers so try to update them itself.

    5.If still you have the problem turn off the Windows Security and then try to update.

    I hope by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    Have a nice day.............
