A notice has appeared telling me that updates are ready to download to my computer. When I click to download it tells me that the update was unable to be successfully installed. The update is Nvidia Corporation Audio Codec Interface size 636KB released on oct 22 2004. The message is constantly appearing. How can I stop this please. My OS is XP Home sp2.

Hi, have you tried a System Restore back to an earlier date before this happenned?

I have exactly the same problem on my Mesh.
The following updates failed to install:
Nvidia Corporation - Sound - NVIDIA(R) nForce(TM) MCP Audio Processing Unit
Nvidia Corporation - Sound - NVIDIA(R) nForce(TM) Audio Codec Interface

or assuming you do have nvidia cards, go to the nvidia site to download/install the latest drivers from there.

Technotiger, No have not tried sys restore. This has only appeared in the last half hour. Surely if I do use sys restore and there is an update due it wiull do the same thing again. Also, why should an update released in october last year take until now to appear?

I would also run ad-aware and a spychecker too - it might not be what it says it is.

Have run adaware and a2 which both show nothing.

Is this an update from the Windows Update site?.If it is then open the Windows Update site manually and pick custom install.See if the offending update is listed (probably in optional hardware updates).Click on it and select "remove from this list" or words to that effect.That should stop it.If not from the windows site,have you got an update tool for your motherboard running in the background?

Hi gudgulf, will do as you suggest re windows update. As for the update tool for the motherboard, I would not know. How would I find out please.

gudgulf, have checked Win updates as you said but update does not appear anywhere

gudgulf, as I finished typing my last message the updates icon in the task bar disappeared. Back to normal now but don`t know why. Many thanks to all who replied. Will tick resolved. Meshuga.
