Windows critical updates

I received an email from PC security adviser - went straight to Microsoft site - ran the update check. 7 updates needed even though the automatic updater is active. The updates downloaded but then came up with message 'cannot be installed'
The updates are:
Microsoft Windows XP
Security Update for Windows XP (KB960225)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB938464)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB958690)
Update for Windows XP (KB959772)
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - March 2009 (KB890830)Microsoft Office 2007
Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Junk Email Filter (KB962871)
Microsoft SQL Server 2005
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service Pack 3 (KB955706)

Should I be worried? If so, advice as to why they won't download please - I had everything else closed if that makes a difference.

I am running on Windows XP home edition V2002 Service pack 3.

Many thanks
SallyC

If the update shield is/was already present in the system tray the updates are already downloading for installation. If the shield is not present, reboot the PC and try again.

wait for someone elses opinion who has more knowledge than myself as to whether the program dial a fix would be a good idea or not.

i hope i am wrong here,but im sure i read somewhere that the "conflicker worm" disables automatic updates (amongest other things),im not sure if this has anything to do with your problem,just mearly pointing out what i read,im sure one the the more knowledgable people will be along to offer some help soon

Many thanks brundle - took 3 attempts but succeeded - only one that didn't update was sequel server which I guess I don't need as my pc is standalone.
Thanks again
