Windows Update probs & 0kb empty files





jwellsy
I am having trouble running Windows Update on a XP sp3 machine. It scans the pc and identifies about 20 files to update that are 0kb in file size a couple of .net framework files and explorer 8. Even if I try to install just one of the fies that actually has data it downloads then fails to install. I've tried every MS help suggestion they have. The update problems seem to have started when I installed sp3.

Anyone else been having problems with Windows Updater, or have any suggestions? I'm thinking try to find a restore point prior to sp3.

This sounds like a suspicious thing to break. If you can't fix it, try checking for malware before you apply SP3 - something nasty might be (accidentally or otherwise) fighting against being patched.
