    Can't install Windows Updates

    I have installed Window XP with SP2 and I am not able to install Windows Updates manually. Atleast there are 12 updates that are showing as by the Express search and it will download and then after downloading I am getting a dialog box that says "Some Updates Were Not Installed". I have listed all the updates below that are not getting installed. The only error that I am getting is "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."

    Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474)
    Security Update for Windows XP (KB941693)
    Security Update for Windows XP (KB945553)
    Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB 947864)
    Security Update for Windows XP (KB948590)
    Security Update for ActiveX Killbits for Windows XP (KB948881)
    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - April 2008 (KB890830)

    Please help.
