When I run Belarc Advisor it sometimes reports that Important or Critical Windows Updates are missing from my computer (Windows XP Home SP3), but when I try to download these updates from the Windows dowload site in each case a message appears telling me that the dowload is not compatible with my version of Windows.
The updates reported as missing yesterday were:-
KB952069
KB954600
KB956802
KB958215
Windows Update is set to download updates automatically, and the only updates that I receive are for Windows Defender.
What should I do?

Problem solved (I think!)- I went (again) to Microsoft Updates and entered the various KB numbers individually in the "search" box, then downloaded each one separately, and in each case the updates installed without any error message appearing.
Belarc Advisor now does not report any missing updates, but when I go to Microsoft Updates and look in "Review My Update History" these 4 updates are not listed!
