    I've been away for the last few months and when I got back home and went
    online Windows(XP Home) tells me that there are important updates just
    waiting to eat up space on my hard drive.
    So I let it do its downloading and installing thing, ok so far.
    When its done all the updating it asks me if I want to restart so I say
    yes.
    PC fires up again but when I checked none of the updates have installed and
    a message tells me no updates were installed and to try again.
    I can see all the downloaded files in the list so they are on my pc waiting
    to be installed.
    This time I went to the Microsoft site and did it from there. Same result
    (or no result really)
    Any ideas what might be causing this?
    I have changed from a usb adsl modem to a router (Netgear DG834) Would that
    couse problems?
    Thanks in advance for the help.
