  1. #1
    Can not seem to get any Critical Updates to install. Windows XP Pro reports that they have downloaded, but are "failing to install"

    Any help please?

    Install SP1 first, not SP1a, hack the OOBE timer, then do your updates. All will be fine then.

    hi there !
    over the last couple of days i also was having "Error Problems with Update Page"
    i looked into the support section re error 0x800A138F.
    it gave me 4 or 5 steps to get around it , like changing a registry key number
    i did this re-booted got back on and dl all updates including latest SP1 pack.
    regards

    Windows update says I have already have SP1 installed. As regards OOBE timer, I have no idea what this is, and certainly wouldn't know how to hack it.
    Explain please.

    M8t. I am not getting any error number at all to give me a clue. I am only getting :- "Windows Update failed to install the downloaded updates" Try again!" which I have several times.

    Kennyboy, you could try finding the install files it downloads and running them manually -- that might give you some more verbose error messages. Look for a 'WUtemp' folder for the install files it downloads.

    Also, what version of Windows do you have? Home, Pro, Corp?
    Kazaa Corruption Fixer --> Fix any corrupted CD image, archive, or video file you've downloaded with Kazaa.

    The oobe timer balam refers to relates to windows xp activation. It stands for Out Of Box Experience.

    I've had the same problem a couple of times. Check that the update you are downloading is not listed in add/remove programs. If it is then uninstall it. Also, delete your wutemp folder before revisiting windows update. The updates should work fine now.

    If SP1 installed then it&#39;ll be fine.
