Ran into the same thing on my home system and a machine I was building up at
work. I downloaded the patches and ran them manually with no problems. I did
a file verification afterwards to make sure. Never trust windowsupdate site
to verify a patch load. Either use a reputable scanner or verify the files

Subject: Administrator Rights?
I'd like to think I'm somewhat computer savvy, but this one escapes
me...running XP, trying to run Windows Update. All but one or two updates
will fail. I've done some research that suggested a necessary service may
not have started, but this is not the case. When looking at the user
account, they are designated as Administrator. However, Windows Update
says it won't install the updates unless it's accomplished by an
administrator. Any suggestions?
