Default Windows XP Update Problem

One of the Microsoft WinXP updates keeps on failing to install when I update my computer. The Security Update for Windows XP (KB888302) keeps failing itself asking for one of the spe2.inf file...but the problem is it's there and its refusing to take it. What can I do to solve this?

M$ Site has it available directly for download. Have you tried to just download it and install it without Windows Update?

Yeah, I was watching closely at the process and an error window popped up to ask for the location of the spe2.inf file. BUt when I click on browse...it's there and refuses to take it.

Funny thing i is i have done a in depth search for that file on my PC and i have not found it.

Yet my system is fully up to date. That file is from 2005 in February. I dont know if you still need it or not. Might want to go to M$ and contact them about this as i cant figure out anything that would help you.

Nevermind, I reinstalled windows and it's fixed now. It was probably something corrupted in the previous installment...
