    Hey-

    MS Office XP update KB921596 continues to fail to install on my Windows XP SP3 system with MS Office XP Standard with SP3. For 1.5 years now, this update continues to fail and there is little support at the MS Knowledge Base site. I have the most current version of the windows update software and all other updates are installed easily. I know that two of you have already dealt with this problem two years ago unfortunately, my system is configured differently. If you know of a fix, please advise. Thank you.

    I removed the files as suggested but the download from the MS website would not finish. It would download 99% of the file then stall out. Alternately, I went to the update site and attempted to download the office updates but KB921596 failed again to install after download. Are there any workarounds to this problem?

    Thanks.
