    Every other day, the critical updates notification appears
    on my screen... dutifully i go select go to view updates
    and lo and behold there it is over and over and over
    again... hence my current historical (hysterical) view of
    successfully installing "823559"

    help me PLEASE, to get out of this cycle (loop de loop)
    there has to be a away to mark it so the site can

    this machine with W98, or at the MS site?

    THANKS, keith

    Keith,


    IMPORTANT : Your antivirus program MUST be temporarily disabled prior to
    the download and installation of the Windows Update ActiveX software
    controls or any Windows Updates. Failure to do so will result in the
    iuctl.cab file being corrupted/damaged and/or show as a 0 KB file .
    Failure to do so in regards to Windows Updates will result in
    damaged/corrupted downloads and damaged/corrupted/incomplete
    installations. Spyblocking software (pop-up stoppers included) and
    incorrectly configured firewalls may prevent access to the Windows
    Update site or the attempt to download and install updates/patches, also.

    823559 was re-released 9/10 and is not *suppose* to have installation
    and detection issues. Note the *suppose* to . Check in the Add\Remove
    Program tool in Control Panel to see if it shows as being installed.
    If it does, check the file attributes of the patch with those on your
    system :

    26-Jun-2003 02:19 2003.1100.5426 311,864 Html32.cnv
    26-Jun-2003 02:19 2003.1100.5426 116,288 Msconv97.dll

    They are located in the Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft
    Shared\TEXTCONV folder. Right click on the files, choose Properties,
    then click the Version tab to find out which version is installed on
    your system.
    If the files match then the patch was installed and the Windows Update
    site is not recognizing it as being installed.
    You can then either uninstall it and then download a "fresh" copy and
    reinstall it again ( if you choose this avenue please use the method
    described below for " IF the files on your system ") OR edit the
    Registry to show it as installed. Editing the Registry can cause your
    system to be unusable if not done correctly. If the files match and you
    wish to edit the Registry, please post back and I'll give you the
    instructions to do so.

    " IF the files on your system " do not match the file attributes of the
    patch, suggest you go here and follow the steps for Win 98 AFTER
    uninstalling it from Add/Remove Programs :
    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=319585
    **Delete the contents of C:\WUTemp if present.**

    NOTE: For the " Remove the Windows Update ActiveX Controls " remove the
    Update Class file found in the WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files folder
    by right clicking it and choosing Remove. Now go to Windows Updates to
    have the software controls installed or manually download the Windows
    Update software controls from :
    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/cab/x86/ansi/iuctl.cab
    save them to your desktop. Extract the .cab file following the steps below:
    1. Go to the desktop and right click the iuctl.cab file.
    2. Click "Extract to."
    3. Point to a known location (like the desktop) and click "OK."
    4. Go to the location you selected and right click on the iuctl.inf file.
    5.Click "Install."
