    Installation Failure -

    Error Code: 0x8007F06B

    Could anyone provide information as to why this update will not install on
    my system? I am running XP SP3 (MCE).

    Thanks!

    This has been posted numerous times in last day or two. One post-er stated
    confirmed an MS engineer/colleagues are aware of this happening, and
    (supposedly) are working on it.

    Keep looking for news & hopefully it will turn up as an MS update patch.

  4. This appears to be a bug in the Windows Update detection logic. KB899589
    should not be needed if WinXP SP3 was installed properly.

    1. Stop the Automatic Updates service:

    Start > Run > (type in) services.msc > [OK]
    Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Stop
    (Stopping the service will take a moment)

    2. Delete the contents of the Download folder:

    Start > Run > (type in) %windir%\SoftwareDistribution > [OK]
    Open the Download folder and delete its contents
    Close the window.

    3. Go to Windows Update website > Select CUSTOM and allow the scan to
    complete > Uncheck/deselect KB899589 and hide it ("Don't show me this update
    again").

    4. Start the Automatic Updates service:

    Start > Run > (type in) services.msc > [OK]
    Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Start
    (Starting the service will take a moment)

    Hi. Thank you for your response.

    I followed your instructions.

    However, the update is "hidden" rather than totally unlisted.

    The message at the top of the (MS Update) screen says:

    Important!

    You've hidden important updates
    You've asked us not to show you one or more high-priority updates but your
    computer might be at risk until they are installed. Restore them now.

    Is there going to be a fix to not let it come up at all, rather than just
    hiding it?

  6. I gave you instructions on how to hide it, not "unlist" it. WYSIWYG.

    Hopefully MS will correct the bug shortly. If you want to contact MS about
    it...
