This is the same problem that I have after I replaced the motherboard to my computer. I have enough space, I did everything that recomended herein and in other post and still not working.

Im temtaded to reformat and start over again but I will lose some of the program already installed.

This thing is driving me nut :thumbsup:

You replaced your motherboard. That's a different solution. Post your own topic so everyone one doesn't get confused. We'll be happy to help

When you tried to update, did you get any error messages?
Changing major components, such as a motherboard you may have to re-activate XP with a phone call to Microsoft. Just explain what you did and have your activation key handy
To contact a Microsoft customer service representative to activate Windows by phone, follow these steps:

1. Click 'Start', point to 'All Programs', point to 'Accessories', point to 'System Tools', and then click 'Activate Windows'.
2. Click Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to active Windows now.
3. Follow the steps in the Activate Windows by phone dialog box, and then click Next.
4. When activation is completed and you receive the following message, click OK.
"You have successfully activated your copy of Windows".

OK.

Is your copy of Windows...activated?

To see if your copy of XP is activated: Start/Run...type in oobe/msoobe /a

Let us know whether it is or not. If not, please activate it.

If all you changed was the motherboard, you might not have to re-activate, but if you also changed the CPU and/or memory I'm pretty sure you do. I always assumed you would get a message of sorts when trying to update about the situation. I have never had to do this so I'm not sure. I'll look into it further, later today

What happens when you go to the WinUpdate site?

Where does the problem start?

Details, please.

Any error messages, also.

It's not enough to just say that "Windows Update Fail".

And...any assumption that you have tried...every...thing that could be a solution...is not realistic.

How did you "restore" Windows? Did you do a repair install? If so, did you remove Internet Explorer 7 before doing this? If not, then this may be the source of your problems. Read this article for more information: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917964

My apologies to take this long to respond. I am kind a busy these days.

This sound like is my problem. I did not have time to remove IE7 since the motherboard crash on me before it got restore. In fact, After replacing the motherboard, I had to restore Win XP since the OS didn't work. This is why I had to restored.

Now, I went head and read the article. Then, I went to the removed program windows to remove ie7 but not program was found. The article suggest that if you don't find ie7 in the removed windows then do it thru Recovery Console. There is some instruction after you load recovery windows. When I did it, First it ask me to log in to the windows directories. I had my Win XP log without any password so i just hit enter key and immediately went to C:Windows prompt directory. I went ahead and enter the command but nothing happen.

Any suggestion in how to delete ie7 so I can reinstall it?

Thanks

Try this:

Step 1. Open Notepad (or any text editor).

Step 2. Copy and paste the following command lines into the Notepad window (the /s switch runs the commands silently, freeing you from having to press Enter after each line):

regsvr32 /s wuapi.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 /s wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 /s wucltui.dll
regsvr32 /s wups2.dll
regsvr32 /s wups.dll
regsvr32 /s wuweb.dll

Step 3. Save the file to your desktop, using a .bat or .cmd extension.

Step 4. Double-click the icon of the .bat or .cmd file.

Step 5. A command window will open, run the commands, and then close.

Step 6. Try the updates again.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
