Hello,
 

I have a Presario Laptop running Win XP Home v. 2002 SP3 x86.

I have a list of updates that need to be downloaded and installed but when I click on Install Updates (from IE browser update site listed under Tools) a little window opens and runs down the whole list and says they have all failed.
Here is a list of the updates I am trying to install.

Any help is appreciated.

Following a PM, it seems you believe the problem is more likely due to file corruption than malware. Have you tried running chkdsk /r and sfc /scannow ?  Both of these tools are designed to fix, the first, hard drive problems and faults, the second, corrupted system files. They are both easy to use.

 

To run chkdsk /r (note the space between the 'k' and the '/') run the Command Prompt as Administrator. 'Start - Programs - Accessories - Cmd Prt', then type chkdsk /r at the cursor and press 'Enter'. You will get a messages aying it can't run, do you want it to run at next boot ?  Type 'Y', then re-boot the computer. Make sure it is plugged into the mains as this test can take upwards of an hour to run.  You run the sfc /scannow command in the same manner.

 

If this doesn't solve your problem, have a look at this BC tutorial - there are a number of useful links with regard to XP scattered through it :
