I have a laptop running XP Pro with SP3 that won't install MS updates. The little shield shows in the sys tray, I click and OK the install, it initiallises takes ages then tells me that all of them failed.
On the same laptop when shutting down, I get an 'Install updates and shutdown' notification but I'm guessing from the short amount of time it takes that the updates are not in fact installed.
Trouble is that some of the updates that are showing in the unsuccessful list are already installed whilst others are not.
Has anyone experience of this, is there anything I can do?
