Default Problems with numerous Windows XP updates after clean install

Hi all,

I just installed Windows XP Professional 32bit SP2 on my computer and it is running great. However, I'm facing a couple of problems with Windows Updates. I made sure my Windows was genuine (which it is) and activated. The problems are I cannot install Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) and Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) does not install properly. With my attempted install of WinXP SP3 I get an error message: "An internal error has occurred. Windows XP Service Pack 3 could not be installed." Now I've done my Googling on this problem and have tried everything on this page with no luck:
I have even tried installing it in safe mode with no luck. Now with the IE8 install problem. I download the IE8 install file from Microsoft Download Center ( First install goes fine except after I reboot my machine and open IE8, it opens, and then immediately flashes closed. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling IE8 and re-downloading it with no luck. Granted I do use Firefox but I still prefer to have everything updated. I have done all the explaining I can on these problems but if you need more info I will do my best to help you. I know this is a Anythingbutipod forum so I will understand if you guys can't help me. However I'd prefer not to register for another forum.

Thanks for the help!
