I've been trying for quite sometime now to install Window's most recent update patches - 11 of them, starting with KB921598 (Office 2003 security update).
It always fails, however, no matter what I do: it will not update neither when turning off computer (normal way) or when I try to do it in a customized way, selecting manually.
