windows xp updates

  lofty 20:23 16 Dec 2005

I cannot get XP to install updates. I have tried all the fixes on Microsoft site - nothing.
Have switched off anti virus, firewall, pop up blocker & restore but still nothing.
The updates are listed but when I press install I get a flashing cursor and task manager tells me the programme is waiting for a response from me?
Have left this running for hours but no response.
Any ideas anyone --- please??
