RE: More Installation Failures
I have the same problem since july. It seems no update will be installed if
there is a problem with just one of them. I installed all updates manually
(search the web for the update id) which worked, only kb953838 won't work.
The error message states 'wrong version number', I have win xp3 and ie
7.0.5730.13. Our problems might be identical.
Any help would be appreciated.
