KB 896358 will not install,

Error code 0x80070003. I have looked everwhere for a fix, googled it, Microsoft etc and cannot understand most of it.Have had no problem with any other update downloading and installing. I have tried this several times and the same result, installation failed. This error code covers a lot of stuff, but I cant find anything specific to my problem, I hope someone can help. Win XPSP2. TIA. Ronnie

I have looked there

and both of those values are what they are supposed to be, I know this is a path problem, but I have no idea how to solve it, anyway thanks for the response. I have e-mailed Microsoft, you can do that for free if you are having trouble with Windows update. It will download, just not install. I do have Tweak UI but I haven't changed anything there. Ronnie

Just sharing my thought on this one.

In reply to: Thanks Roddy32

If the scenario is like one I ran into, other things should fail install. What scenario?

A neighbor was having problems installing programs. We had to disable a Privacy Protector, TeaTimer and the Anti-Virus and the patch went in. I didn't bother to figure out which it was since it's a freebie and I wanted to get it done.
