    Hey Friend

    In Xp this problem is common so if you are unable for this type of update then directly download the Update package from the internet
    Either from microsoft website or from any other website and run it.

    It will automatically install all your new updates for the windows.
    This type of installation is called as standalone package update.
    thnx

    Hello friend,


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

    1.This may be the problem of the compatibility.

    2.May be that update is not compatible with your system OS or your system configuration.

    3.If that is not your problem then the problem may be with the virus.

    4.So you install the best antivirus software and then use it.

    5.If that is also not your problem then the problem is with the settings.

    6.So you open the Automatic Updates and then select the option 'Install Updates Automatically'.

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

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

    Re: Problem with not downloading System updates on Windows XP

    Throughout Xp this issue may happen if you're not capable to get this type of revise then right get the Upgrade package deal online
    Often through master of science web site or perhaps through the alternative web site and also perform it.

    It is going to immediately install many your changes for that windows.
    Such type of installing is usually called as stand alone package deal update.
    If you need to remedy this specific problem.
    Next 1st look at computer is usually connected with the net.
    Next commence modernizing.
    Likewise look at online pack just isn't gradual.
    Go responsible panel.
    There it's important to go iin windowpane revise ..
    And select the revise you should it
