Windows Update at Shutdown

    Running Win XP Pro and IE8.

    For about a week or so, when I shutdown, I see the option of
    clicking to obtain a Windows update, or to shutdown with out
    the update.

    I have been clicking on the "update" part and I see the update
    as being installed and then I do shut down. But the next time I
    want to shutdown, I get the same option screen again.

    I can't get to the "no-option" screen that I usually see.

    Thanks

    And the update's (or updates') KB number(s) is/are...?

    WinXP SP2 or SP3?

    Check your WindowsUpdate.log (%windir%\WindowsUpdate.log) for this
    information as well as errors associated with the failed installations (one
    assumes).
