Do a repair of XP? There was an issue with the infamous silent update that Microsoft pushed out. Basically it updated the Windows update to a newer version. This caused 7 DLLs to not be registered which in turn causes about 60 or so updates to fail or not be installed.
Try this link for assistance. The easiest method appears to be the manually register the dll section.
