View Full Version : XP Update problem after installing SP3

19-05-2008, 02:29 PM
I have installed XP SP3 on two PCs here at work and have a problem with windows update.

Windows update has tried to install old versions of their mal. software removal program, ie: Feb,March and Aprils ones. Plus an IE7 update.
All have failed.

Everything else appears fine.

Has anyone else come across this problem?

I got the same error with IE 7 after I slipstreamed / installed SP3 from CD.

Cant remember what the KB is now, but I wouldnt worry about it. Dont install the update for IE 7, since it doesnt need it. Its probably a bug.

Ignore the update when it pops up, or go to the windowsupdate site and untick the update.

I didnt install that malware removal program, dont need it.

Yes just had this last night after installing SP3.

Slightly different update list (.Net 2, Windows Media Player), but the general symptoms are Windows Update fails and the failures do not appear in the update history anywhere.

I followed method 1 from this knowledge base article and it resolved it for me.

I tried it on the two pcs and it worked.

Thanks for that.
