No I have a legit copy of xp. Turns out my hard drive was becoming corrupt. I lost the drive. Had to go get another one today. Picked up a SATA 80 GB and had to get a radeon 9600 while I was at it. All better now.

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.

Legit copy of XP? Other than that, I'd say re-install.
I'm not an O/S guru in any way shape or form...

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.

|cdub998||Ok I just finished building my system so I did a HD format and put in a fresh install of XP Pro. I uodated to service pack 1 and then started doing the critical updates. First all of the critical updates would cause my box to turn of and back on. Now all of the updates all fail... Any suggestions?|
