How do I install Windows XP updates?

Question

I have been unable to install new Windows XP updates because when I try to run PC Backup, I get error messages that there are registry erros relating to HKEY &/or HKCU. I've run the Error Checking tool twice. How do I access the results, and if it didn't repair the problem, what do I do?

There are three systems that backup parts of the systems affecting the registry The Emergency Repair Disk backs up the critical Boot Files The Automated Systems Recovery lets you create a backup of your system for later use The third and better one is the Backup Wizard which can be reached by going to the welcome screen and select the Backup Wizard and chose from the choices The Backup Wizards third option can make an ERD file with Registry backup and Active Directory files When you install Windows updates certain files may need to be backed up and if your Backup Wizard is kept updated you can go to the Backup Wizard to correct installation updates errors.
