How many updates are you trying to install at one time?

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to any advice

Try installing only 10 or fewer if need be at a time. Start at the bottom of the list and work your way up.

Whenever I redo an XP machine there are a bazillion updates to download and install. It never works when I try to get all of them at once. Never.

only

by Jaqui In reply to How many updates are you ...

420 packages.
one of which is required for the os, and is being completely removed, not to be replaced.

not a problem

Try turning on automatic updates

by DadsPad In reply to any advice

Once had a pc that could not even get to the Microsoft update site. Just kept getting page errors.

I turned on auto updates and the updates came in, but not all at once. They would be installed as the pc shut down. Gives message windows will close when updates finished.

Only thing that worked. :0

what version do you have Home / Prof ? SP1 or SP2?

by Natraj Vannavada In reply to any advice

If I were you, I'd do these things in the following order:

1) update your anti-virus software.
2) check for / quarantine all viruses.
3) create a stable system restore point.
4) install service pack 2 if I don't have it already.
5) turn on Auto-Updates ( only download and notify before installing, Option)

IMHO: I wouldn't select the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool as part of the updates.
It's kind of useless when you already have an anti-virus and slows down the system considerably.

Please let us know how it goes this time,..
