    I have just reinstalled the XP and hence been doing updates via Windows Update. It all went fine until I hit the SP1 Express. SP1 was updated as shown in the log but the Windows Update keeps on prompting me to do SP1 update and the update subsequent to SP1 (around 18 of them). I check the log but it shows that all these updates were successfully installed. What have gone wrong? Have I done the update at all?
