Security Update for Windows XP Service Pack 3 (KB952069)

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by vegasaudioguy, Apr 10, 2009.

  1. Just got a new computer, and it keeps wanting to install this update...I
    "install" it, it "installs", I close the window, then it immediately keeps
    wanting me to install it. Can someone please help me work this problem out,
    as it is driving me crazy.

    Thanks very much!

  2. Is KB952069 the only update offered by Windows Update/Automatic Update to
    your WinXP SP3 machine?

    Is it a brand-new computer or a new-for-you, used or refurbished computer?

  3. Yes KB952069 is the only update that keeps trying to install over and over.

    The computer is a brand new dell mini 9" that I just bought from dell. It
    is running XP Home Edition.

    to a Security Update and cite the update's KB number (e.g., KB952069).

  5. Which version of Windows Media Player is installed on that machine?
    Are there any indications in the "KB952069.log" or "KB952069-v2.log"
    file(s), which are located in the Windows folder?

    Did you reboot Windows in the meantime?
