    Here's what worked for me if you're getting the KB-944338 update that fails
    to install -- Running Windows XP SP-2 with IE-7 installed--If you are running
    a second party firewall, like Zone Alarm or Norton 360, turn it off and turn
    on WIndows firewall just for this fix. Sometimes these firewalls work TOO
    good. Download Windows Scripting Engine 5.7 and install, reboot, and leave
    whatever firewalll running you would like. This fixed my preblem of the
    update failing to install.
