Thread: Something Fishy...

  1. #1
    A friend of mine has had a weird problem - he kept being prompted to install the same XP update (KB835732). I told him to remove the update - my guess was as good as his - redownload, and reinstall it. Everything went smooth until reboot; I wasn't there, but the machine took ages to start then reported it had recovered from a "critical failure". The update warning hasn't reappeared, though.

    Normal hiccup or a possible problem ?

    IIRC there was a critical update that addressed erroneous 'system has recovered form a critical failure' messages which was incorporated into SP1. If SP1 has been installed, though, it shouldn't be that.

    instead of installing that update from the critical updates web site, download it directly from MS and then install it. I had to do this on some computers.

    I'll pass on the message.
