Sounds like your IE is corrupt, uninstall it from Add/Remove programs, this will revert to an older version, visit Windows Updates to re-install.

Microsoft updates do not install


You have not said which OS you are using so; from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

When you try to install Windows updates from the Windows Update Web site, the Microsoft Update Web site, or by using Automatic Update, you receive a message that the update is not installed successfully. Additionally, the update is not displayed in the update history.

You may experience this issue in the following scenarios:

Scenario 1 You try to install updates after repair a Windows XP installation by using the Windows XP CD.
Scenario 2 You perform the following operations before you try to install Windows updates:

You perform a new installation of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2).
You visit the Windows Update Web site, or the Microsoft Update Web site.
Note When you visit the update Web site, the latest version of Windows Update software will be installed in your computer.
You install Windows XP Service Pack (SP3) without a restart.
You try to install Windows updates after the install of Windows XP SP3.

Then cause ;

This issue occurs because the Wups2.dll file that is included in the latest version of Windows Update is not installed correctly.

For scenario 1, the registry entries that correspond to the Wups2.dll file are missing after the repair install of Windows XP. The release version of Windows XP does not contain the Windows Update software.

For scenario 2, the registry entries that correspond to Windows Update are changed back to the Windows XP SP2 version if you did not restart the computer before you install Windows XP SP3. The registry entries for the Wups2.dll file are changed to pointing to the Wups.dll file that is included in the release version of Windows XP SP2.
To resolve this problem, use one of the following methods;

Method 1: Download and install the Windows Update Agent,
For an x86-based computer; http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.4.7600.226/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

For an x64-based computer http://download.windowsupdate.com/WindowsUpdate/redist/standalone/7.4.7600.226/WindowsUpdateAgent30-x64.exe

Method 2: Register the Wups2.dll file,

To have MS register the Wups2.dll file in Windows for you, go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144#FixItForMeAlways.

If you prefer to fix this problem yourself,

To register the Wups2.dll file in Windows, follow these steps:

1. Stop the Automatic Updates service. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Open the Command Prompt window. To do this, click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
b. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
net stop wuauserv

2. Register the Wups2.dll file. To do this, follow these steps:

a. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll

Note For a computer that is running Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll

b. Click OK if you receive a verification message.

3. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, type the following command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
net start wuauserv

4. Exit the Command Prompt window. To do this, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

I have windows home edition service pack 1 and i need to update my browser? i keep getting debug errors


You will need to update XP to Service Pack 3. Just Google "XP Service Pack 3" and follow instructions, OR go to http://www.microsoft.com/update - this will also update your browser to Internet Explorer 8.

You can install Firefox with no special updates, but it would be better to update to SP3 anyway.

How to install windowsxp kb936929 sp3 x86 debug enu on my laptop got this file from somewhere, confused of installing this ,do i have to make a iso image of this and then create cd and then install


I'd just go to windows update already on your laptop.

Start - All programmes - windows update (top left hand corner). If you choose the "custom" option for downloads, you should be able to see/check all the downloads and updates. These should also include SP3.

Problem = (windows service pack) + analogue power saving) + (sonic update) = dead pc for no apparent reason = reboots itself = grrrrr


Hi

Great so far you have excellent work in analyzing the problem now, to stop a paitcular update from being installed you have to
1.Go to Control Panel
2.Open Security Center
3. Click Automatic Updates
4. Choose the Option saying "Notify me but dont autoamtically download or install them"

By doing so the update manager will evrey time ask you which updates to download and install you simply have to click on the chekbox to accept or reject them. (But do read the instruction with the updates that, what will be the changes otherwise you may miss some imporatant update?)
This is what i have been doing over the years any till now I dont have problem with the update manager.
