I have a Dell Dimension e510 I'm working on for a friend that fails to update at MS update. I get a fail to update for Update for Xp(kb898461) and a Win Gen Adv Validation Tool(kb892130). I know the Software is valid, I helped him order it from Dell 2 yrs ago. It downloads them but fails to install. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Are these the only updates the you have problems with? If yes, try to download them again and reinstall. If the problem is with other window updates download Dial-a-Fix from the link in my list of programs below, unzip the folder and click on diale-a-fix.exe. Check Fix Window Updates and then click Go.

Thanks, Skeptic, I tried your suggestion but it still won't install. It will install any thing but ms stuff. But I know for a fact its genuine. I really don't want to reformat because he has a lot of very important cad design programs and stuff he cant lose. Anyway, thanks for trying. I'm not going to let it whip me.
