    WinXP SP3 - Fails to install updates

    Hi,

    I recently updated to SP3 and I'm now finding that I cannot install updates
    from the Windows update site. I use AVG as my anti-virus and Sygate Personal
    Firewall. The following updates fail to install:

    Security Update for Windows XP with Windows Media Format Runtime 9.5 and 11
    (KB941569)
    Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 2.0 (KB928365)
    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1
    Security Update for Flash Player (KB923789)
    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - May 2008 (KB890830)

    PC Specs:

    AMD Athlon 3500 X64
    1024 DDR
    Gigabyte GA-K8nXP-SLI
    Microsoft Windows XP SP3

    Has anyone else had this annoying problem??

    Cheers

    James

    Installing SP3 the second time!!!!! FAILED AGAIN!!
    Same anoying thing has happend to me.

    Ive just tried to install SP3 for 2nd time and upon reboot, my PC died or
    WONT start!!
    First time, i was lucky to do system restor and Im hopping i could do the
    same NOW!

    It's frustrating!! Is there any solution to this?!!

    BTW, in the safe mode i tried to download the update, hoped to go through
    BUT the error# 0x8007043 apears in which in ''find the solution'' section,
    this code is nowhere to find!! I give up! no more SP3!!!

    Had you just (re)installed WinXP before you installed SP3?
