    This morning after the automatic update on my home system. After downloading
    the windows update icon disappears but a couple minutes later it reappears
    and wants me to redownload it all over again. This keeps happening.

    I have been experiencing the same thing for the past 2 days. Hopefully MS
    will fix it shortly.

    Exact same problem three days running.........
    Must be more than just a minor problem. Can't anyone help with this?

    All indications in Update History indicate successful update, however, task
    bar notification keeps reappearing.

    After receiving my log file Eric suggested:

    The most common cause for this is that you have an OEM PC on which the PC
    manufacturer imaged the kmixer.sys, wdmaud.sys and splitter.sys drivers as
    unsigned. Update.exe will treat these drivers as OEM drivers and not
    overwrite them. Please try the following:





    1. Download the update from
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...93a7-6a6c6a87be7f&displaylang=en&Hash=7LFJN64 and save to their C: drive

    2. Click on the Start/Run

    3. Type C:\WindowsXP-KB920872-x86-ENU.exe /o and click OK



    Thank you


    Eric

    I did as Eric recommended and the recurring update has stopped.

    Thanks, Eric
