SYMPTOMS
If you scan for updates for your Microsoft Windows XP-based or Microsoft
Windows 2000-based computer at the Microsoft Windows Update Web site,
Windows Update may display a list of updates that are available for your
computer. However, if you click Install on the Install Updates Web page to
download and install the updates, the progress indicator stops responding,
and you cannot download the updates.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, make sure that the DCOM settings in your computer are
configured correctly. To do this, use the method for your operating system.

Yet another very poorly written article.  No reasons, no 
explanations, no references....   Thanks but no thanks.  I'm sure 
glad I don't use WU.

Install Windows XP on Your Pre-Installed Windows Vista Computer
"The question I am asked most often is "How do I install a dual-boot with Windows XP on my new Windows Vista computer?" The answer is that it's not that difficult, it's just very time consuming, and you need to own a copy of Windows XP. The first issue we encounter is that computers with pre-installed operating systems take up the entire drive. Luckily Microsoft included the Shrink volume feature in Vista, so we can easily shrink the Vista partition down to make room for XP."... <http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/install-windows-xp-on-your-...

Disabling Windows File Protection in Windows 2000 and Windows XP
This short article is intended to clear up confusion about how to disable Windows File Protection. I've seen errant information posted in many places and felt it necessary to sum up the truth of the matter. When Windows File Protection was first introduced in Windows 2000 I found it bothersome. After doing some research on how to disable it I was surprised to learn that Microsoft only provided a mechanism to do so when a kernel debugger is active by setting the SFCDisable registry value to 1 or 2 . The MSDN article describing this is here: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb...

Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7, and for Windows Server 2008 R2
What is the System Update Readiness Tool? System resources, such as file data, registry data, and even in-memory data, can develop inconsistencies during the lifetime of the operating system. These inconsistencies might be caused by various hardware failures or might be caused by software issues. In some cases, these inconsistencies can affect the Windows servicing store, and they can cause software updates not to work. The System Update Readiness Tool tries to resolve these inconsistencies. http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=947821 -- "If U know neither the enemy nor y...

IBM tells employees not to install Windows XP update
While developers at Microsoft Corp. may be celebrating that they finished work on Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows XP, IT departments around the world now face the question of whether they should update their systems, or not.

In a note headlined "To patch -- or not to patch" posted Friday on its corporate intranet, IBM tells its employees not to download SP2 when it becomes available because of compatibility issues. A copy of the note was obtained by IDG News Service. "Wh...

See the previous thread for the story so far: http://groups.google.com/group/mozilla.dev.planning/browse_thread/thread/67ddcaa5c897a58b# What seems to be a reasonable step is to declare that Windows XP SP2 is the lowest supported version of Windows. Older versions will not be blocked from working based on current plans, but are considered unsupported. What Unsupported Means: * No tinderbox coverage * No QA coverage * No unit test or talos performance coverage * Bugs only affecting these platforms will not be considered as blocking any release 1.9.2 or later. ** We wil...
