Hi Guys
My os is xp. I have had no problems in the past downloading and installing windows updates, until now.I can download updates 824105 and 824146 but they won't install any idea's. In the last couple of days I have installed "spyware blaster" has this caused a problem. Thanks

Did you receive these updates or notification about them by email? If so, you've probably just got infected by the Swen Virus. Microsoft do not send out updates via email notification. Check this post click here

I have a similar problem.

When I try to download the 'direct X' update from the Windows Update site, it downloads OK, but will not intall. I've tried about four times now with no success.

Anyone got any suggestions?
