I just discovered something that should be of interest to those who are still using XP or XP SP1 and haven't yet upgraded to XP SP2 and who can't get it to appear when they do a scan at the Windows Updates site.

If you unknowingly have T.V. Media installed in your computer, this'll prevent the XP SP2 upgrade from appearing during a scan.

To resolve that problem, you need to do one of two things:

1. Install the KB885523 critical update.

2. Install and make use of the Adware T.V. Media Removal Tool.

You can read about it in detail at the Microsoft KB885523 site.

You're welcome.

Hopefully, it'll help some people who have a problem getting the SP2 upgrade installed.
