:unsure: Hi I'm new here and I have a problem with Microsoft Update. I have Microsoft
Windows Xp Home Edition Ver 2002 Sp3.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My problem is when I go to Microsoft Update I get :

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I click Install Updates and after a successful install I get the yellow shield asking
me to Install the same Updates again. I've tried several "Microsoft Fix its" with no
success on fixing the problem.


I would deeply appreciate any help. Thank You. :help:

For what it's worth, I am having the same problems as KoolKat1939. Should I start a new topic here, or follow this one?

Mine eventually worked fine after running FixIt and then reinstalling the updates.

After three installations --according to MS Updates Installed--the system quit asking me to install the updates.
Had to be a Microsoft glitch.
