Windows Update fails
I had to rebuild my Windows XP system as a result of a system corruption due
I integrated the Service Pak 2 files with my original XP CD as indicated was
possible in a knowledge base article. After installation Windows update found
88 or so updates available and failed to install any of them.
I am a little over half way reinstalling them manually by downloading them
individually from the Microsoft Update Catalog.
Wondering if there is a way to re-enable Windows Updates or Microsoft
Updates as both methods fail to install the updates found.
definately a bug in this update
Go to start click CONTROL PANEL then click ADD or REMOVE than put a thick in show updates and remove
update (KB873339). it shows you that some updates or programs wil be affected "egnore this"
When removed go to win update and clik Iwill choose update
choose them all exept "KB873339"
and whala' all done
If you get automatic update always leve out the above update. IT WORKED FOR ME
