Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130) won't install

... and, of course, it won't let me check for any other updates until it does.
I'm running XP Home SR2 with all updates untill 22 December installed OK,
including this one in August last year that the system now insists needs
reinstalling.

It has downloaded, but won't install. It doesn't show at all on the update
history, so no error message; no failed install icon to check.

I've tried "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012" as suggested in an
old post on this topic, but didn't do anyhting. I've tried it with Zone Alarm
firewall, anti virus, antispyware all off, still no luck.

Any other suggestions about cause or solution?

Cheers
