RE: Office XP Service Pack 3 Install Failure
I had the same problem, and it turned out I had Word Viewer 2003 installed,
which was part of the updates. I uninstalled it, checked again at the Windows
update website, and instead of seven updates it said I was updated. Perhaps
you're having a similar problem?
