SP2 Failing to Install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Windowsians. I've been having a problem where the Windows Automatic Updates program has been failing to install literally everything I want it to. I did a repair installation of Windows XP recently, and I read online that doing a repair install uninstalls your Service Pack, so I had to go get SP2 again. When trying to the first 6 times, it just said "Genuine Advantage Program Failed." I went and validated my copy of Windows XP, tried again, and in a matter of 10 seconds, I recieved a notice that the following programs failed to install:

    This happened more than once, mind you. I tried installing SP2 four times, and those are the same things I got.

     

    Hopefully there's a solution to this. I'm not very comfortable knowing that critical security updates are failing to install.

     

    Thanks,

    Patch.
