Workstations rejecting patches/service packs
Posted on 2004-08-26
I have some older PCs that don't seem to be accepting patches
I've attempted deploying the patches manually, but after a scan with Microsoft’s Baseline Security Analyzer, they still show as vulnerable.
In some instances, a PC won't accept except SP4 (over its current sp3 install)
in other SP4 machines, they are selective: where one won't accept any post sp4 patches and other another will reject every other patch.
I'm applying the patches in order and they even show up in the Add/Remove Program Wiz as being installed, but scans show they are vulnerable. Are these readings bogus?
The PCs having the problem are all in the range of PII and Celeron processors with 400-500 mhz, 256mb ram and 5gig hard drives, with plenty of space.
This is my last attempt before I reload the machines with integrated SP4, so any advice help is appreciated.
