    I'm running Xp pro SP3. I successfully installed security update KB 956572.
    However, automatic updates and Windows Update, continues to prompt me to
    install the update. I have successfully installed 3 times, uninstalled it
    once, and installed 2 more times. I am still receiving the update. I have
    followed all the Windows Update troubleshooting steps without success. Any
    suggestions?

    Yes. I downloaded the Update and ran it manually, in both Safe and Normal
    Windows modes.

    Thank you for the KB link; I will call Microsoft as directed.

    I called Microsoft - they took over my PC, made about 20 changes, and now
    everything is fine. I am no longer offered the update.

    Thank you PA Bear

  6. You're welcome & thanks for your feedback. But if you were able to install
    the updates manually, why did you call Microsoft? Any idea what changes
    they made via remote access?

    All the updates I ran were successful whteher automatic or manual. The
    problem I had. was that following a successful update. Windows Update would
    continue to offer me the same critical update.

    Microsoft made some changes to file names in the System32 folder, then had
    me reboot. Then they uninstalled the update and had me reboot. Then they
    made some more changes in the Sytem32 folder, downloaded and ran the update
    manually, and had me reboot. At this point, Windows Update was able to
    detect that the update was done and it stopped offering me the update. I
    guess Microsoft made 6 - 8 changes overall (not 20 as I previously stated)
    but I couldn't keep track of what they were doing. I know they did not
    directly edit the registry. It seemed to be a known problem and their
    support script was very precise.
