Laptop and Update do not agree
I'm installing a new harddrive with XP Home. Everything is fine until after
I loaded the SP3 update. There were 4 updates after SP3 one for Internet
Explorer 7, Maliscious Program Removal Tool and two others that I don't
remember right now. I downloaded the 4 updates and the Install reported that
Install failed because something on my machine was not accepting the updates.
I retried the Updates with the same result. Update did not download again
just went straight to install and reported that they failed. I used the
system restore point and went one further than I wanted to. IE: its now back
to where I was after I loaded from DISK at SP2. I clicked Update and the 4
Updates mentioned above downloaded and installed. Update history shows that
SP3 is installed but when I check my system properties and the Add/Remove
Software SP3 is not present. How do I get my Laptop and Update back in sync?
