The first link refers to the updated update, 823980 security patch (MS03-026).

In case you can't find it, here's a summary:

---

"To install this update, you must have Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed.

Restart Requirement
You must restart your computer after you apply this hotfix.

Hotfix Replacement Information

For Windows XP SP1-based computers, this hotfix replaces the 823980 security patch (MS03-026).

For additional information about the 823980 security patch, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

If you key in 823980 into the Knowledge Base ID field (go to click here, click on Support in left hand menu and then Knowledge Base from the sub-menu) it will take you to the right page.
