Try setting the system to "download updates for me but let me chose when to install them"

Control panel - system - automatic updates tab

That might work
In the beginning there was the command line.

You could download the updates manually and try to install them that way. Here's the last update released on September 19th...
WindowsXP-KB2616676-v2-x86-ENU.exe KB2616676 Fraudulent digital certificates could allow spoofing - Advisory 2607712
Try installing it.

Do you get a listing of which updates are due? If not you can go back to the last month the updates work and figure out what you need by looking at my changelog here.

would it be a bad idea to continue using the computer as is without the ms updates? would something bad happen?

It's definitely not good. I would for sure stay away from using Internet Explorer as most vulnerabilities use that vector to infect you.
