    This may happen because of following most listed problem.
    1. The Windows Update Temporary folder is corrupted.
    2. Windows Update Agent 3.0 is not installed properly.

    This may also happen that If you are running any third party applications such as Spyblocker, Internet or web accelerators this all application are designed to boost the speed of the Internet connection and also some of security or anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee, etc.) comes under this which does not allow to install cumulative update

    I will suggest you to Reinstall Windows Update Agent 3.0 and to do so you need to download the Windows Update Agent 3.0 and need to save to the C:\ drive.
    • Click Start, Click Run and copy the following command to the panel:
    • C:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /wuforce
    • Note: There is a space between "C:\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" and "/wuforce".

    The latest version of Windows Update includes a file that was not available in the release version of Windows XP. This file is named Wups2.dll. Therefore, after the repair operation is complete, the following situation exists:
    • The Wups2.dll file remains on the computer.
    • The registry entries that correspond to this file are missing.
