The problem is that I can't run windows update on my windows xp but my other laptop it works fine. I know there are other ways to install updates but I am not sure what to look for or where to start?

You could start by telling us why exactly can't you install windows updates. Laugh 

For example, does it shoot an error at you? Or say cannot connect to update servers? Or the windows update console crashes when you try updating? This way we can narrow down the cause of the problem when googling for a solution.

I hate to ask, but do you have a legitimate copy of Windows?

If you reinstall the OS, it should install IE by default. If for some reason you don't have IE, you might try enabling automatic updates in the Control Panel. Not sure if that will work without IE, but everytime I've used automatic updates in the past it doesn't appear to use a browser.

Have you tried to activate the auto-updates?

You may be use the option “Ask before downloading”, so you can be choose which updates to install.

Autopatcher is the best out there! Have been using it for many years for XP installs, works flawlessly. Smile

Another way is to order service pack 3 (SP3) CD from Microsoft. It includes all updates and fixes, and costs $3.99

Well just for the curious, on an XP box I had before I used Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer to check for critical updates I need and download and install them when time permitted me to do so.

Do you have any components (mice / keyboard / etc) connected to the USB3 ports currently? If you do, move them.

Try and disable the USB3 chip in BIOS for the time being. Windows7 does not natively support USB3 – and it may complain about drivers if it detects something connected to one of those ports.
