I dont know why it doesnt install from windows update i downloaded mine from there with no problems,it did take a while to install though it has to make back ups of files and scan your Hdd so give it time to work,otherwise you could try
click here

it may be a bigger download than the update one that was only 64Mb for me this can be 300Mb+

Fruit bat

The usual ones update was not installed and today I had one that was headed SETUP ERROR and said " you do not have permission to update Windows XP, please contact
your system administer.

First time I have had that though.

Any good reason why we cant attach in this forum.

Kindly check if your system restore option is turned on and try updating again. This sort of problem i experienced and solved after keeping system restore under monitoring condition.
