Default Windows xp, certain updates fail to install?

Basically im using my old celeron pc at the moment while my AMD rig is offline and to cut a long story short i screwed up the HDD on the old pc which meant i had to use the recovery cd's to reset the windows install to how it left the factory..............5-6 years ago so obviously service pack one was installed so i had to install like 160updates altogether not including service pack 2, but anyway after installing service pack 2 and restarting i checked for updates one last time and it came up with 2-3 but they just wont install, ive tried rebooting the pc loads of times, tried booting into safe mode with networking but my modem didnt work in that mode for some reason so i couldnt try that.

Anyway heres which ones wont install


im fairly confident that by not installing the above wont cause me any problems its just the fact that i keep getting prompted that theres updates and if i turn updates off i get that other message saying my pc might be at risk so i cant win really! i just want these installed

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

OK try clearing your temp internet files and deleting cookies. That solved my issue.
