I dont usually receive problems from microsoft updates, but this one is getting on my nerves a bit. See, I am at a college in california, and there is this program called "Cisco Clean Access" which is like a toll booth to use the internet here. You have a student ID and a password.

for some reason, the campus administrators changed Cisco Clean Access so that it requires everyone to update their computers, mainly PC people. I just got my desktop up and running after installing 2 new GPU's and a PSU, and am now updating it. I have the updates, but one of them is giving me some lip! here....

"Updates were unable to be successfully installed.

The following updates were not installed:
Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP (KB929969)"


I have it downloaded, and click to install it, but it just wont budge. I tried express install, but to no avail. I tried custom install, again, to no avail. If anyone is familiar with this issue or wants to give me advice, I would greatly appreciate that.

Thanks!

I solved it, LoL. the solution is much easier than I thought.

I opened the box that gave me the error report, and clicked on the link it provided in the box below, which led me to a microsoft/tech/bulletin or something, and chose the link under the "affected systems." I guess the problem was with the updater itself. sorry to waste space!
