Yea, I know. How can you have a windows update issue right? Well... uhh... Anyway, here it is. I have windows xp on my laptop. When I got it I did all the updates including service pack 3. That was two months ago. Now the computer says it has new updates to install but it won't download them or install them. Says they could not be installed. My next move will be to go to the windows update page and do it there instead of from the auto-update manager. Just thought maybe some of you guys would know what is going on here.
