[stoopid KB Advanced Search: Why do not either of those come up when you
search on "8007007e"?!  Well, it looks more official now, at least. <sigh> ]

Hi TaurArian,

Thanks, this fixed the problem, I re-installed SP2.
I could then download updates, tho they wouldn't install.
I found the fix for not installing on another microsoft help page
Thanks

Richard
