    Help! I used Microsoft's Windows Update tool under the start button to download critical updates for the OS(W2K Server) and browser. The download went fine but the installation keeps failing and I can't install any other way without getting an error message that another installation has been started and needs to be completed. I'm stuck in a continuous loop that I don't know how to resolve. It was installing IE6 and/or service packs for IE6 when it began to have a problem. Rebooting the machine just brings me back to a window asking me to continue with the install but it always ends in a failure.

    Any solutions out there? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for your help Candy. Deleting the Windows Update directory brought me out of the continuous loop I was in. Attempting a new installation now.
