I recently installed several XP updates. During the installation the 2 warning screens in the attached file appeared, to which I cllicked "Cancel". Having recently removed an infection, I am not certain if the updates mentioned in the warnings were previously installed.

Is this normal behavior for updates?

Thanks for your help,
