Are you able to run a System Restore? If the applet will open, restore to a time just before the updates were installed.

Do you have your XP disk? If so, is it a Microsoft disk or an OEM (branded) disk?

checking, click Check Now, click to check Automatically fix file errors, Click Start. You will be asked do you wish to reschedule for next restart. Click YES.
Restart computer. DO NOT INTERRUPT the check or use the computer.
When that has finished. and provising no warnings as computer is restarted
Insert the CD.
If it autoruns, simply exit from that.
Type "sfc /scannow" without the colons.
Note space between sfc and /.
