When I received that error, it was because I changed my enviroment variables. In other words, I used to change the default variable of TEMP / TMP to have it set to C:\TEMP.
makes it easier for cleaning up Temp files/folders.

If your enviroment variable ( or path for TEMP/TMP ) is set to go to a folder which does not exist, it will produce this error.
Make sure you enviroment variable(s) are pointed to valid folder(s) on your harddrive.

GOOD LUCK!!!

Excellent Cookies...I attempted the download of that security update you posted and was prompted with an error that my cryptographic service wasn't running so after starting it the download took and I rebooted and sure enough I can now begin the install of the Crazy amount of 54 XP PRO updates...thanks :D
