Windows Updates fail to install

Guest

For some time now all the new Windows updates have failed to install. I
can't find any explanation as to why or how to resolve. I wait several
days/weeks and try again. The same result. I have tried turning off all
firewalls, stopped all other programs and sceensaver, and allowed popups.
Same result.
I click "Express". I get 7 updates selected. It indicates they are
already Downloaded. I click to "Install Updates".
It starts by displaying "Initializing installation...". Then it diplays
them one at a time with "failed". Then it says, Updates were unable to be
successfuly installed
"The following updates were not installed:"
Office XP Service Pack 3
Office 2003 Service Pack 2
Update for Windows XP (KB910437)
Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer for Windows XP (KB905915)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB908519)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB912919)
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - January 2006 (KB890830)

I can then "Configure automatic updates" or [Close].

I get:

Failed Updates
For help installing an update successfully, see the solution under each
problem description.

Problem: A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being
downloaded or installed
Solution: To fix the problem, try installing the updates again. If that
doesn't work, use the Troubleshooter to try solve the problem.

....(the following does not display on my screen but shows up from copy/paste
to here):

Problem: End User License Agreement (EULA) Not Accepted
Solution: Check for updates again and wait while you install updates. You
will be asked to accept the EULA before any updates with a EULA can be
installed.

(...I was never asked).

Problem: Not Enough Disk Space
Solution: To make more space available, run the Disk Cleanup tool or
uninstall any programs that you don’t use. For directions, see Help and
Support on your computer.
(....? I have 100's of GB's available)

Problem: Automatic Updates is currently installing updates
Solution: Please wait until Automatic Updates is complete and then check
your update history. At that time, if the update has failed to install, you
can try installing it from the website.

(...hown many months should I wait?)

Note: To view Automatic Updates progress, click the updating icon in your
System Tray.

Office and windows update should never run together,office updates are only
thru,office home page,"scan for updates".You can either,download updates
by themselves at downloads (microsoft.com),or you might/should try selecting
microsoft update At microsoft home page,it replaces windows updater.

I have tried running them seperately, just the Windows updates, or let the
site do its own thing. No effect.
That's the way I usually try to run updates (via Update page). Again no
effect.
Thanks for the suggestion though.
