KB2286198 downloads but does not install.

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by Jackson, Aug 5, 2010.

    Dell Dim C521, AMD 64 x2 Dual,
    Media Center Edition ver 2002,
    Service Pack 3
    IE8

    The update downloads from the Win Update but does not
    install itself. There is no explanation given.
    I was on automatic update so I turned that off and tried
    manually, but it still wouldn't install.

    Later I downloaded and installed KB972696 (MSE definitions)
    with no problem but 2286198 still would not install.

    Am I the only one with this problem? Where do I start? In
    the past I haven't had very good results with Windows update
    help.

    Thanks. Taxacola Jack

    Never mind, the problem no longer exists. I ran chkdsk and
    rebooted and then, when I ran the update, it downloaded AND
    installed itself. I don't know just what chkdsk actually
    did since I can't remember where the log is written, but it
    evidently straightened out the mess.

    Sorry for the interruption...

    The chkdsk result should be listed in the Application event log with the
    Source being Chkdsk.
    Right click My Computer either on the Desktop or Start Menu, choose
    Manage to access the App event log.
