    I just did a fresh install of XP pro. Went to windows update and downloaded 17 critical updates or service packs. Now when I go back to the web page, it says that I have a critical update to download, but nothing appears on the selected screen. Also, when I attempt to download the one phantom update, I get an error screen, and I cannot install any updates because I cannot deselect the update.

  4. I was getting the same thing (just did a fresh install of XP Pro and in the
    middle of another. I was able to get it to work by going into Internet
    Options, Advanced Tab and checking the box to enable the Microsoft VM Java
    Console. After this, it then showed information about the update and I was
    able to install it.

    On a 2nd system I did the same thing and the above did not seem to work but
    after clearing temporary internet files and rebooting and try a few more
    times it finally worked right. Seems kinda flakey at the moment.
