I have a Windows XP workstation that has SP3 - When I try running the Windows updates, I get the message "You may be unable to access the Windows Update wesite from Windows XP..."
Basically it's telling me that I don't have SP3 installed. I've run across this at least three times before, but I've always solved it by running the "WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" file. This time that didn't work So, I tried running the "winxpprosp3updatefix" files that I found on another site - still a no-go. I tried it in Safe Mode - still a no-go. I'm trying it as Administrator. This is an OLD HP PC that I installed XP and the drivers from the OEM CD's - wasn't even at SP1 - after the install, I ugraded to SP2, then rebooted, then installed SP3. I've spent, i.e., wasted, quite a bit of time on this - Thanks, Microsoft! NOT!!! WTF!!!???
