Win XP Home will not apply updates
My Dad has a Dell with XP Home and he had to Repair the OS because of issues of files he may have deleted by accident.
The fix went well with help from Dell, and everything worked except I noticed he kept getting a yellow shield stating that there were updates downloaded and ready to install.
O.K., I went to the icon and chose all updates (91) to be installed.
It started the process (Updates were already downloaded) and then all of a sudden it stopped and said that all updates failed. In my haste I forgot to write the code error but it was something like Xoooe5 or something like that.
I did try to do a single update install also with the same result.
Should something stop the updates?
The system has SP2, and it is a legal version. (I did verify it)

It would be nice to know the error What happens when you go online to Windows updates, if it fails there write down the error code.

XP Home Updates issue
Thanks for your quick reply.
I did get a answer from a MS Newsgroup from a MS Tech.
Seems there was an issue with repairing XP WITH the disc.
The computer is at my Dad's and I will fix it this week.
The answer is clear as day in the KB.
