I have a pending Windows Update (Windows XP) notification icon in the system tray, however, when I click on it to begin the installation, the process begins normally, but consistently results in a dialogue box indicating the update could not be installed.
The particular update I am having problems with is KB2570791.
I changed my automatic update settings to download and install automatically. I have attempted to install the update while in safe mode, and have attempted to install it when shutting down (where the shut down/restart box has the option of installing just prior to shutting down). Nothing works.
I would like to install the update. However, if this turns out to be a problem that can't be solved, and if this update isn't urgent or even particularly important, how do I remove the notification icon from the taskbar?
Thanks to everyone.
