    I just installed XP Pro w/SP3 on a new hard drive. WD 640g sata drive.
    After getting a good part of the os set up I tried to dl all the updates needed.
    I did this by clicking on the update link in All Programs.
    They could not be installed.
    I tried going through MS Update. No good.
    I had to go through MS Baseline Security Analyzer to install the updates. That worked but took a good bit of time.
    For all of the above I had whatever security disabled. Made no difference.
    Today I get informed via a pop up box that there are 2 updates available.
    I disable TF, Avira Premium, Geswall Pro trial and Windows firewall.
    I can't install the updates!
    And they don't show up on MSBSA.
    But I'm able to install all my other crap.
    I could use some help with this.
    Thanks.

    JRViejo,
    No luck.
    KB952287 and KB951978 will not install.
    Thanks for trying.

    JRViejo,
    I thought I posted this earlier in the form of an edit.
    After I tried your first post I started looking for more info for that subject.
    On the MS Help and Support pages I found a page entitled:

    'Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you perform a new Windows XP installation or you repair a Windows XP installation '.

    The problem seems to occur frequently.
    I fit nicely into the 2nd scenario and was able to correct the problem.
    Thanks for yuour help.
