Some XP updates are not applicable to every version.

Microsoft's website details clearly which updates apply to which versions.

Mistake on one of the updates sorry

But when he run the auto update it come up with those updates: two as critical and one as optional.

I've pointed out that some recent XP updates don't apply to every version...:-)

Downloaded one or two (for XP Pro) and, when finished, informed that it doesn't apply to my particular installation.

It could also be that they've already been installed as part of another update which incorporates the one(s) just downloaded.

Crossed wires.

Another method is to go to the Microsoft XP home page and then to Security and Downloads and try downloading each update separately.
