XP Pro will not install updates

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Lowly Engineer, Jan 21, 2008.

  1. I recently did a REPAIR on an XP Pro machine. After the repair, it
    seemed to be running properly. I went to Windows Update in an
    attempt to get the system up to date. 85 updates were downloaded, but
    the system will NOT install ANY of them. I get no error codes - only
    "85 Updates Failed to Install".
    It wouldn't even install the hardware updates.

    I have administrator rights, and have run a virus check.

    What should I try next?
