In short if you don't use the SNMP service then this update is optional.

XP updates download ok, no problem with WGA but none of them will install. Error msg advises to check log which says, in a long list .....
1.141: C:\WINDOWS\system32\snmp.exe is Not Present
1.141: Condition Check for Line 1 of PreRequisite returned FALSE
1.141: ReadStringFromInf: UpdSpGetLineText failed: 0xe0000102
Any ideas please.
But I always pick out the updates I want to install, I reject quite a few. I do not have the knowledge to reject a SNMP update out of hand. Even after selecting I often have quite a few that will not install, and they all used to!
How can I know that I dont need a particular update?
Thanks for your reply but perhaps I have not explained very well, it's not just isolated Updates.
This is a list of the Updates I have downloaded today (so no problem with WGA) but none of them will install. My virus checker and firewall were disabled first.

I'll pick on the first one.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925672 notes "issues" with the install and sadly Microsoft drops the ball again on what might have been an easy update. With each item Microsoft seems to expect you to dig in and do the research as to why it failed.
I don't see anything you've done wrong here.
