Cannot install XP file KB898461

Hi All,

Have just had to re-install windows XP on my computer after a fatal crash.
have updated all my windows XP updates, but cannot update one particular file KB898461 every time I try it says update failed.
Have been to Windows online help and see that someone else has had the same problem.
But no indication on how to fix the problem.
Anybody had the same error message. And has been able to fix it.

I can't find anything in the Microsoft Knowledge-base that would be of any help with installing this update. However after looking at click here I don't think there is any need for you to worry about it, not having it will not compromise your Windows installation.

I think you may well be right, I was looking for info relating specifically to the this update.

Have been to update history, but it shows status as cancelled. Yet I have not cancelled it. Every time I try it shows cancelled.
Any other subjections.
