    Here's a couple of things to try>
    Windows Update - Error

    If you cannot update XP check your c:\windows\windows update.log. If you have this error: Error 0x800C0008 then go to Tools\internet options\languages. You must have one language selected. Boom windows update works again!

    Or for LAN settings

    Go to control panel, open up Internet Options\Connections. Click on the Lan Settings button at the bottom right of the window. Untick Automatically detect settings.

    Is there a way you can set Windows to automatically download all updates and install them queitly under a normal user logon with no admin rights? im sick of having to log out and log into every machine to install updates
