Updates Failing - XP Pro

    I've recently had to do a REPAIR (not restore) with XP Pro.... (had a
    problem with USB ports not working 100%)....

    Since the repair XP keeps downloading updates (80- in all ) that need
    installing... they download - I run them/install re-boot and the updates are
    not installed and XP starts again downloading and then telling me that new
    updates are ready ... install and again 80 are not or could not be
    installed ?

    Every time i switch on and boot up XP starts downloading these same updates
    then tell s me they are ready to install but again after INSTALL/BOOT says
    'could not install' (shows a long list of updates that wouldn't
    install)...??

    Seems something's gone out of sync.with it.... !

    Anyone know what's happening or how to cure ???

    Microsoft Installs New Software Without Permission

    One doesn't have to have read a link to post one based on an interesting
    headline.

    What I'm getting at is that they're about forcing updates even when you
    have them disabled. In that context, I'd think "I have updates turned
    off" to be not much defense. Yes, I see the smiley, but I that that
    was a smug ("I'm protected!") smiley, not a joking smiley.

    It is smugness, I haven't really updated since SP2, I did the WMF one
    and the time zone and a few others but no I don't get the updates, I
    have turned off the ability of one coming in (I don't call out).

    Doing so I prevent the stuff they are pulling (the suprise WGA), now
    this.

    I don't trust windows never have, and do what I need to keep mine,
    keep to itself.

    Since the REPAIR XP seems to have gone back to a 'clean install' with no
    updates - so it wants to install everything it can... it downloads them - I
    run to install but it tell me there are some that cannot be installed
    (80).... Nothing in control panel (show updates is ticked )....

    Lets try simple stuff first.
    GoTo: Start>Windows Update
    A basic check is performed and you should then be presented with
    two options: "Express" and "Custom"
    Select: "Custom"
    A scan is performed ("Checking for latest updates for your computer")
    Once scan is complete, it will detail what updates are available, which
    will be made up of the 80 that it already tried but failed to install.
    To the left of screen will be a tree that details updates by type:
    High Priority
    Software, Optional
    Hardware, Optional
    Go through all the options and DE-select the Software and Hardware
    *optional* updates. (Just un-tick boxes etc)
    Only select to install "High Priority" updates.
    Once the High Priority update installation is complete, if successful -you
    will get the Option to Restart.
    Upon reboot, perfom the above *Custom* install again, and this time
    try to install the Optional updates.

    That's where I was trying to get to and it seemed a one-step at a time
    approach would work better.

    I think you're right..............

    OP: Do a custom install, but with the high priority updates,
    Click the "+" to view details of what exactly the update is,
    Each High Priority update will detail when it was released,
    Start by just installing the first released (oldest).
    You may find you have to do each one-at-a-time?

    I'm assuming (as you are) that he's done regular disk maintenance such
    as defrag and cleaning out old files and the registry.

    What I find amusing is that windoze users think *they* own the OS, when in
    fact they are licensing it (read "renting") from M$.
    I wonder how many of them actually *read* the EULA. In the fine print, of
    Vista for example, the terms and conditions remove any doubt about *who* is
    in control by providing that "this agreement only gives you some rights to
    use the software. ***Microsoft reserves all other rights***".
    That virtually gives M$ the right to do anything they want.

    Advid, this worked for me on several clients' computers in the last 3
    weeks. Seems to be a widespread problem. Hope this works for you also, sam

    Advid, hope this works for you--it did on several computers I used
    "Repair" on as well as one I did a clean install on. If you Google, you'll
    see it is widespread. Luck to you, sam

    ....Have carried out previous suggestion and looking in updates individually
    noticed and update from IE6 to IE7 and thought 'that's it !' ...the REPAIR
    had put my previous IE7 update back to IE6 from the Win XP disk..... I
    first went to IE7 upgraded from MS site and went and loaded IE7 (took ages)
    then it started installing updates and I thought i'd cracked it BUT after
    reboot IE7 came in OK but now instead of 80 updates I've still got 76 and
    computer continues to load these at bootup time and tells me to install ---
    on install it tells me 76 updates could not be installed -it's back to the
    drawing board .....!!!!


    RE:- SUGGESTION BELOW -

    what does this little lot actually do ???

    I'm always worried when doing direct registry commands...!!!

    Sorry, should've made that clear. It simply re-registers the windows
    update installer components, as noted by the .dll files beginnng with "WU".
    There were several instances of similar #'s of updates that I recall that
    failed to install: 43, 44, 68, 73,--76 I don't precisely recall, but I know
    I did not see them all! It can't hurt to re-register them anyway, as they
    will just write over what is already there IF yours are correct, and only
    change them if corrupt.
    I understand your hesitance. Dunno how to handle that, and might not if
    our shoes were reversed! Problem seemed to be caused by Windows Updates
    using a corrupt installer with issuance of specific update-bundles; i.e.,
    "Bill" was out of the store for a few days planning where else to give away
    OUR $s we so freely gave him! ;). Good luck, sam

    Decided to give below registry settings a run and would you believe it - IT
    WORKED 100% - WOW ! - thanks a lot for that info....

    On reboot upgrade found the 76 upgrades and this time it installed every one
    successfully - did another reboot - went to upgrade and it tells me - 'no
    upgrades' - so I'm back to 'normal' again...

    Once again - many thanks

    It was good of you to post back, so few do.
    And congrats to sdlomi2, I've made a copy of your your solution.
