If you have pirated copy of XP it will stop working after the SP1 upgrade unless its activated before a certain time, unless you have corporate that is.

On corporate it will tell you a different serial is required anyway.

Also check your computer for the blaster which affected everyone a while ago, I got it after a reinstall and was in a very similar situation lucky enough I knew about it and had the patch on CD

The other alternative would to display any error codes/messages you get, microsoft would normally give you one on the page if you have errors.

It could be a couple of things
1 microsoft site might be experiencing problems
2 you might not of downloaded an update that an other update needs

Try downloading them again but one at a time ...I know it sucks but this has happened to me too. If the problem still persists you may have to reinstall windows again.
