    I keep getting this update (security update for XP)
    automatically downloaded. I have tried to install it but
    the installation always fails. I have tried to do it
    with the virus scan & firewall disabled but with no luck.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Any ideas to getting
    this resolved

  2. CM,

    Does this situation apply to your XP installation :


    " Symptoms....
    An attacker may exploit the vulnerability by sending a specially formed
    HTTP request to a computer running Microsoft Internet Information
    Services (IIS).

    Mitigating factors
    .... The vulnerability can only be exploited remotely if an attacker can
    establish a Web session with an affected server. "

    Are you running a server on your XP installation ? If not, they update
    is not for you. If you are, download the patch directly from the above
    page with your server not running and your antivirus/firewall programs
    temporarily disabled. Install it in this manner also.
