Re: Updates won't install

Hello again,
I right-clicked the Windows folder and selected Properties. The Windows
folder is 12 GB!!! Something happened that made it get that big. Do you know
what it was?
I have a 5 year old Dell laptop running XP with SP3.

Is the only way to fix this is re-build the hard disk?

Thanks so much for helping me,

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you perform a new Windows XP
installation or you repair a Windows XP installation
