    ...I've recently had a crash and had to do to a REPAIR (no fresh re-install)
    of my XP Pro (and SP2) and now it looks for (auto) updates and tells me
    that there are 79 for installing.

    BUT - when installing it won't install them as they're are already
    (somewhere) on the PC ... when I switch off the PC it tells me that these
    updates are ready for installing but I can't because they're already
    there....

    How do I delete the already installed and do a clean install of required
    updates....

    Hope I make myself clear...
