    I have XE Pro and tried to update w/SP2. Said I had to download a program to install. I did. (can't remember what or where it went) :confused: Now I can't install update. :mad: I click on the recomended update and after it checks my computer this is what I get:

    You haven't said what you've tried, but were these methods included?

    See the "ADDENDUM: 12 November, 2003"

    I would also remove the current Active X download from the Downloaded Programs Folder, and force it to reinstall that. This is the folder you see when selecting "view objects" in Internet Options > Settings.
