critical updates instaling problems

  ray27 12:21 15 Apr 2004

I have been trying to install the latest critical updates for windows xp home

There were 5 on the site recently of which only 3 managed to install OK

Kb837001 and KB828741 seem to download ok but they will not install.

The install indicator moves very slowly and when it reaches the end, this takes about an hour, it just hang's there.

When you look at the installation history they are both shown as failed.

As anyone had the same problem?

I am, due to go onto broadband at the end of the month and I am making sure my security is up to date so if anyone can advise I would be most grateful

Many thanks Ray
