    I have had an strange problem with a newly installed XP machine and
    MS03-040. This machine hasn’t installed any previously Internet Explorer
    Cumulative Patch because the machine wasn’t around before the patch.


    The problem is that Windows Automatic Updates want to install Q324929
    (MS02-068) on and on even if I was installed and then rebooted. Next time
    Automatic Update runs it informs me that it want’s to install the patch
    again and so on. After talking with Microsoft they advised me to install
    Q822925 (MS03-004) but it will install with the error message that I need
    Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 which is installed.


    Since we got anew machine in the end of august that installed Q822925
    (MS03-032) that haven’t had the same problem I have installed the same patch
    on the new machine and thereafter it seems not to have problem any more but
    it says that I have to install Q828750 (MS03-040) again. So it seems that
    Microsoft has done something wrong with MS03-040.
