Update KB956744 Won't Install

This is a standard Windows Update that I try to install but get a message
that it failed to install. I can't find any source to tell me why it won't
or what I can do about it. I am not getting an error code of any sort - it
is just listed under "not installed" when I get my update installation screen
at the end of the installs.

Can anyone help please?

What Operating System are you using including SP Level?

On the assumption it's Windows XP -

On the WU Website, select your history of updates - now click on failed
update (red mark) and see if there is an error code.
If there is an error code, write it down and post back or in the
alternative, do a search for the error code.

Re: Update KB956744 Won't Install

Hello, please note that when I use the manual windows update for my Win XP Pro version 2002 with SP3. I get a message that says that the Windows Security update for Windows XP (KB956744) is OK, it still continues to come up with the MS Automatic Updates as needing to be installed.
Can anyone please help?

Kind regards,
