Automatic updates-2 problems


Harmon Koeltz

Running XP Home SP2
I have Automatic Updates set to download and install but it seems I still
find the yellow shield in the systray and have to click install.
Occasionally, I get a shield on the turn off button to install on turn off.
Never saw that until a week ago.

The big problem is two updates that have downloaded: KB920907 Outlook 2003
Junk Mail Filter and KB921566 Security Update for Office 2003. I click to
install and the installation fails. The message is Updates were unable to be
installed sucessfully. Also have the icon on the turn off button. I turn the
machine off and get the warning not to unplug it as two updates are being
installed but they never get installed

Thanks in advance
