1) Are you using a legal Windows for one thing?
2) Make sure you have selected to download updates automatically, or to tell you but not automatically download.

I don't know what could be going on, if its telling you it can't physically download

Make sure you update Windows Update to Microsoft Update...I think.

I doubt that. Why don't you try to do the update through the browser. When it gives the error take a screen shot and post up here. I've had XP do that to me before. I just restarted tried again and it went through. After all the updates are downloaded are you running anything else.

Sometimes if you have to download something that requires a reboot and some that don't it seems like certain updates fail. In which case try doing a update at a time and see if that works.

Have you got an image of what it does though?

Do it now if you can, and host the image on a free service like:
http://www.photobucket.com

I use that, and love it
