Over the past couple of weeks Microsoft updates have been automatically downloaded to my computer as usual but they are just sitting there and will not install: I have tried manually installing them from the Web Site and also tried to get them to install when I am closing down but they just will not install. I am running Windows XP Home with 1 GB RAM and 140 odd GB of disk space. The list sitting on my computer is:

Where have you found these updates and how do you know that it did not install them????

What happens when you try to install? Error message? Nothing happens?

Try WURT first click here, if no luck try Dial-A-Fix click here

Thanks brundle - tried WURT but still no luck - the Dial-a-Fix is some piece of kit - worked perfectly - after running it all 63 upodates installed along with 3 new ones!! That is one programme I'll be keeping on my computer - again thanks for the time and expertise.
