Welcome to Lunarsoft.

You may want to use the Anti-Malware Toolkit and check for malware, then try Dial-a-fix again (and post a log for it as well).

"Fail to install" is not a good technical explanation of what happen.

You should include any error messages, such as "Error code: 12345. Error in A version B caused by C due to D."

When those updates attempt to install, they write individual log files in the WINDOWS directory.

For example, Security Update for Windows XP (KB950762) will create KB950762.log. Have a look at some of the log files for the updates you have listed. (HINT: pick the smaller logfiles, not the larger ones.)

There should be an error message towards the end. (Warning: the error messages are not always clear as to what is / is not happening.) If the log file is small enough (e.g. a few kB only) post that along with the log asked for by Tarun.

Right - usually KB<KB number>.log. You can also look into the WindowsUpdate.log in the same folder for at least an error code and return code for each failed installation attempt.
