First of all check for and rmove any virus.

Then you need to download and download (1)KB896358 Security Update for Windows XP and (2)KB896727 Cumulative Security Update of Internet Explorer, first before tryng to download and install any other updates

You could also try by deleting all instances of iuengine.dll and rerunning update
