Since Dec 3 I have not been able to update Windows XP Home. As a result there
are 7 High Priority Updates that have not been added to my computer.

When the computer trys to do an automatic update it fails with the error
code 80244017. When I try to update from the windows update website it fails
with erroer code 80072F78.

Please help as my computer is not protected from the issues addressed by the
7 updates.
