Critical update not "taking" how to fix this?

Posted: 02-21-2004, 08:53 PM

Got a little problem I'm hoping someone could explain how to fix. On
Monday the 16th I broke down and finally updated to Window Media
player 9. Next day my auto-update alerted me to a critical update
(KB828026) and I installed it. No reboot required. Next day on the
18th I get yet another auto alert for the exact same update. Again, I
install it and it completes successfully. Guess what on the 19th?..
sure enough it pops up yet AGAIN! and that this point I go to the
website directly and have it scan my system. It comes up with the same
damn update and once again.. I've got it installed and successful. My
history shows each day logged and installed.

EVERY SINGLE DAY I GET THIS ALERT THAT I NEED TO UPDATE IT.

I havn't attempted to un-install the WM9 update yet, thinking that
it's part of the o/s and can't really do it. Is this the way I'm going
to fix this ANNOYING problem?

Thanks for any help :

Intel 2.6C 800FSB
Asus P4C800-E bios 1011
1Gig Corsair XMS 3200
Win XP Home
ATI 9700 Pro (o/cd 378/330.75)
DirectX9.0b / Omega 4.10 drivers
WD1600 JB 160gig 8meg cache
TDK CDRW161040x

Many times uninstalling and then re-installing will fix this problem. It is
caused by a corrupt install file.

In the windowsupdate newsgroup, there has been a lot of discussing on the
828026.
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof....windowsupdate
On the website, if you put in "828026" in the Subject line of its search
utility Find (top Rt. corner), you will get 100+ hits in return. A number
of fixes have been suggested. Please visit that site for details. This,
from MVP Jupiter Jones, will make a fine start:
