KB885884 update problem

By Aardvark144 ·
XP SP2 loaded and appears fine. Next 2 updates are KB885884 and KB834707. Downloaded ok (?) and then they sit there with installing updates. Nothing happens tho. They do not appear in add/remove programs. They show as 0kb downloads if I go back to Windows update site. Cancelling supposed installing hangs there as cancelling. have removed SP2 and reloaded. Same problem with these 2 updates. They will not install. How do I remove the supposed installation and re-install?

Made no difference. Also learnt that to remove contents of \windows\softwaredistribution\datasource folder (contents only!) allows update to be reloaded from MS site but still will not install.
