Same Critical Update Each Night

By pierrejamme ·
The same critical update downloads each night for Media Player: KB828026. I kept getting updates for Media Player and at first though "Boy what a buggy program!". Yesterday I looked at "DEtails" and wrote down the KB# and again this morning there it was ready to install. How can I stop?

might require a reboot for the update to take effect. Just a quess.

I have rebooted many times since this started happening. It isn't showing up as "Windows XP Hotfix-kb828026" as I think it should. That is probably why it downloads every night.

well the bulletin says you have to be logged on as the administrator & have to reboot for it to take effect. since you've rebooted and it hasn't taken effect, I'll ask are you installing it logged on as the administrator or with administrator privleges? Is the hotfix showing up in add/remove programs? Do you have antivirus running with script blocking that might stop the program from installing?

Yes I am the network admin. I cannot stop the McAfee small Business a?ctive Defense without uninstalling it. and no as i said in comment on 3/3, it doesn't show up in Add/Remove as: "Windows XP Hotfix-kb828026". All the other critical updates install without a problem????

I unchecked the box the last time it tried to update and hasn't come back so may be corrected.
Thanks,
