problem installing XP update

  Hedontownee 07:23 12 Sep 2007

I somehow managed to crash my computer after unsuccessfully installing some software.!
I was unable to recover the situation so decided to re-install XP with the original CD
however it would appear now that I have 79 updates to install from the microsoft upate web page.
They appear to download to my comp OK but wont install. The little shield appears on the menu bar and when I boot down it appears to install the downloaded updates but when booy up again they havnt been installed.
How do I get my XP Home back up to date?
Any help and advice would be very much appreciate
Thanks in advance

Thanks once again for the quick response to my query.
The link proved very successful in repairing the Update function.
This utility will be kept on file for future reference.
You live and learn :-)
Cheers and beers
