MS Update issues, and missing files

  etlcnes 15:10 10 Jan 2007

Tried to download and install the following

Security Update for Excel 2003 (KB925257)
Security Update for Outlook 2003 (KB924085)
Update for Outlook 2003 Junk Email Filter (KB925534)
Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB929969)

All failed and when I try to search for them on the MS site to download and install manually they are not found on the MS site - any suggestions

May be a silly question, but you are on Win XP sp2 ? Not that should make any difference to finding the files, but would re the downloads.

Yep on XP SP2 with all previous updates installed

Verify that BITS is correctly configured. Then, try to start BITS. When you try to start BITS, you may receive one of several error messages. These error messages are listed in the "Troubleshooting steps" section. If you receive an error message when you try to start BITS, follow the steps in the section that corresponds to the error message that you receive.

To verify that BITS is correctly configured and then start BITS, follow these steps:1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
2. Double-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service.
3. In the Startup type box, click Manual, and then click Apply.
4. Click the Log On tab, and then verify that the service is enabled in every hardware profile that is listed. If the service is disabled in one or more hardware profiles, click the hardware profile, click Enable, and then click Apply.

If BITS starts successfully, visit the Windows Update Web site or the Microsoft Update Web site to obtain updates. If you successfully obtain updates, follow steps 1 to 3 again. However, in step 3, click Automatic instead of Manual
