I ran windows update today and tried to install: "windows genuine advantage notification" and it failed installation. "905474". I tried several times and get the "failed installation" red icon.
I did install the windows genuine advantage validation tool "892130" and it installed with no problem.
I also checked my version of windows xp by going to my documents and running "is this copy of windows legal" and it came back "Thank you for running the Windows Validation Assistant. It appears that your Windows Product Key is valid. This is a strong indicator that your operating system is genuine".
So how do I installed the failed update??
