When I try to update to IE8 (either through automatic update or manually), the installation process fails to install IE8. Auto Update runs through the installation but puts a red cross against the "Install Internet Explorer 8" line. If I try manually, the installation package complains that I need an update and points me to a page to download an update (KB932823). When I run this update, it stops telling me that "Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of the system is newer than the update being applied. There is no need to install the update". My OS is reported as XP SP3 v 5.1.2600 SP3 version 5913, build 2600 from System Info. I seem to be stuck in a chicken and egg situation. Any suggestions as to how to rectify this so that I can install IE8 and get rid of the annoying "Updates are available for your computer" notification that keeps popping up!
