    Same thing here - failed update. Obviously something Microsoft needs to fix.

    I am having the same problem I tried at least 5 times but with no luck. I am
    sure they will get it fixed.

    Not only failed 3 times also caused a critical error on restart, I needed to
    go back to last known good configuration.

    Anybody else having a problem on restart?

  16. Hm, has this update been offered to your (and your reincarnations) system
    via Windows/Auto Update? Or did you download the update manually and are
    trying to install it now?

    KB899589 (MS05-046) dates back on October 2005(!). It has been replaced
    by KB923980 (MS06-066) in November 2006(!).

    The last 15 lines copy&pasted out of the KB899589.log file located in the
    Windows folder may be helpful to identify the installation problem.

    It was offered up by "Microsoft Update" today, not manually downloaded.

    I noticed when I Googled the KB all the hits were era 2005
    Dave, Jun 19, 2008
    Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of this system is newer
    than the update you are applying.

    Translation: There is no need to install this update.

    QED: Why was it offered?

    Did you install WinXP SP3 via Windows Update (or Automatic Updates) or did
    you install it manually?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed? What
    anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall
    (if any)? Were any of these appplications running when you installed SP3?


    This might be a bug in Windows Update detection logic, considering how many
    "Me, too!" replies we're seeing here.

    NB Lurkers: I will only reply to the vtgrandpa in this thread. If you need
    more assistance, please begin a new thread of your own.

  19. I too am having the same problem, and this is not the first time this kind of
    thing has happened. This refuses to download and install with error
    0x8007F06B ...

    Now I cannot seem to find any information about this. So Microsoft, wake up
    and lets hear from you.

  20. This update has been offered to me via microsoft updates, I did not try to
    manually install this or download it to update the computer. When I go to
    auto updates, it offers it and says we have to have it. Why?
