KB977165 is a kernel update and ever since these are released for
Windows XP, MS doesn't get those to install correctly as soon as it's an
OEM system (with OEM drivers installed) on which these kind of updates
should be installed on.
To get these updates for Windows XP installed properly on these systems,
you'll need to download the update from DownloadCenter:
*save* the file into a folder and execute the EXE with the parameter "/o"
(like "/overwriteoem") afterwards.
Let's assume you've downloaded the english version of KB977165 into a
folder "Downloads" which is located on your C: drive. In this case
please restart Windows in Safe Mode (hit the [F8] key after the BIOS
screen occured while booting your machine). Then enter the following
*including* all blanks and quote signs into "Run" in the Start menu
and hit [Enter] or click on OK afterwards:
After rebooting Windows, the update shouldn't be reoffered by WU/AU once

That depends on the usage of the system in question.
