    Stopping a Windows Update Installation

    I've downloaded some patches for Win XP and it's trying to install but fails. Every time I start my PC it tries to install the patch and eventually my system grinds to a halt.

    How do I delete the download?

    My Computer> Properties> Automatic Updates> Notify me but don't automatically download or install them.
