Tell us more about this computer. Have you had to re-install or repair the Windows OS installation recently? Have you installed SP3 successfully?
Any other issues with the computer or the OS?
You could try a manual download and install, from here;
But there are more details and guidance on failed Windows Updates here;
I hope that helps.
I have an icon that says updates are ready for my computer , how ever when I try to download I get a message saying that the update was not installed.
When I go the the windows update site it shows that there is a download ready but it has a size of 0kb and my history says that the last attempt failed.
The update is called:
Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB950759)
This is the error code displayed:
Error Code: 0x8007F0F1
I am using xp pro.
