Updates won't install in Windows XP Pro

Every time I try to install my updates in Windows XP Pro it gives me this error message: "Updates were unable to be successfully installed." Can you help?
There are a number of possible reasons why updates might not install correctly. I explored a few of them here: Simple fixes for Windows Update failures. Try my suggestions and see if there's any improvement in your situation.
