Failing to install updates.
These problems occured BEFORE installing Norton 360.
First of all; excuse my possible lousy english as I am from Norway :-)

I'm running a brand new installation of 32bit XP Pro with SP3 installed.

When running widows update I repeadly keep getting update-recommondations to
innstall packages kb929399, kb956390,kb940157 and kb829019. They are all
eighter empty, OR - like kb929399, meant for x64bit systems!!!

This causes me to have to turn off automatical updates, which in the next
turn results in an annoying nagging from the OS to turn it back on!!!
Grrrrr....

Anybody who have encountered this problems?

Note; Win Update just tells me there were some updates that were not
installed. No errormessage to relate to.

Thanx in advance :-)

Regards

Re: Failing to install updates.
Hi, this has been a common problem recently and usually method 1 in this
article is sufficient, if not you may have to use method 2 -

Updates are not installed successfully from Windows Update, from Microsoft
Update, or by using Automatic Updates after you perform a new Windows XP
installation or you repair a Windows XP installation
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144

For future assistance, try the WU newsgroup as this is only for the
*catalog*.

I've never had automatic updates on. I always want to go through
the list, although I rarely turn a high-priority update down. And I
want updating to occur on my schedule, not Microsoft's.
