I am trying to install these updates (See below) on a friend's PC that has refused to upgrade IE or Media Player for about a year now. I managed to get about 38 outstanding updates to install just now and used CCleaner to fix about 100 registry errors but still no banana.
It has XP with SP2 and is otherwise up to date. Runs regular spyware ad virus checks and nothing obvious about.
- Update for Internet Explorer 6 for Windows XP (KB946627) - Windows Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP - Security Update for Windows Media Player 10 for Windows XP (KB936782)
I have tried installing IE7 and WMP11 from direct links to the MS site with results like:
- It was not possible to complete setup - WMP 11 was not installed - To update windows run WMP11 setup again
I have also tried to uninstall/reinstall both products and downgrade/upgrade them with same kind of results. Thanks Mike
