Problem with Microsoft Updates after SP3 install RRS feed

  • Question


    I am a desktop admin for a small company and recently upgraded our systems (XP Pro) to Service Pack 3.  Since that time, I've run into issues with installing Microsoft updates.  When I go to the web page, it shows me all of the available updates (as it always has), but it wont successfully install them.  They seem to download with no problem, but then they fail upon installing.  Attempts to re-run the installs also fail.  Reboots havent helped.


    If I manually download/install a particular update (ex. .NET 2.0), it works fine.  Also, it doesnt seem to affect every PC.  It's overall a very random issue.


    Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, can you provide any advice on fixing it?


    Kind regards,
