    Unable to even download this update using the MS auto-updater (let
    alone install it!). And, manually finding and saving the WindowsXP-
    KB950759-x86-ENU.exe file and then trying to run it results in "The
    version of internet explorer you have installed does not match the
    update you are trying to install". WTF version of Internet Explorer 7
    should I have installed, pray tell MS you hosebags?

    Any and all assistance in resolving this issue will be
    appreciated. ...I shouldn't have installed SP3, should I have?

  3. Did you install IE7 before or after you installed SP3?

    Did you install SP3 via Windows Update or manually? If the latter, was it
    the final release of SP3 or a beta build?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed? What
    anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall
    (if any)? Were any of these applications running when you installed SP3?

    SP3 installed via Windows Update; IE7 installed since Moses was in
    short pants; firewall, anti-virus software, and even Windows XP SP2
    active when SP3 installed - WTF kinda outfit you running here!? If
    these things were to have been disabled, wouldn't you think the Micro-
    Softdicks would have said so? Anyway, I have managed to install
    KB950679 on 2 out of my 3 PC's (all with similar configurations) since
    I posted this thing (being a long suffering MS customer, I don't give
    up easily! However, I may give up on you bastards soon.).
