Unfortunately that particular error code simply means that Windows knows something is wrong but doesn't know what it is --- strictly speaking it's not even an error code in the true sense, since they are accompanied by textual information in block caps. such as , for example, KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR.

One thing that might get you out of the problem is to temporarily disable all firewalls (disable the router hardware firewall if you have one too) but leave the built-in XP firewall running, while you are using the MS updates service. That's just assuming it's a third-party firewall problem of course. Just a possibility it might be.
