I was able to manually download and install most of the previously mentioned automatic downloads.
I am left with 2 that cause the "remove hardware safely" hot plug to disappear from the task bar.
1. Security Update for Windows XP (KB951748)
2. Update for Windows XP (KB951978)
I tried installing them separately and both installations cause the green arrow icon to disappear. Any clues? Do I need these updates?
Computer came loaded with Vista which I hate.
I installed a second hard drive with Windows XP Pro SP2. Then auto updated to SP3 with no problem.
I have updates scheduled to notify me for updates.
These are the updates in question. They download but installation fails.
