  1. Interestingly, I had backed up both those keys before I deleted them. Mine were also set to "0" and everything had been working well. It may have been a non-issue for those of us who missed it. Regardless, thank you all for the input!
  2. Is this in regards to the two keys I removed, WES and WEPOS? I've saved the registry entries. Should I add one back in? I did find all but the Office 2003 updated when I ran MU.
  3. I really want to triple check this before I delete. Remove everything then with the exception of the POSReady key? edited to add Ah, okay. So now I've removed WES and WEPOS keys. edited again I manually ran the MU and it picked up 4 of the 5 updates. It did not find the Office 2003 update, so I downloaded and installed that one by hand. All went well. Thanks again, fellas!
  4. So I've removed the WES key. Shall I leave the WEPOS and the rest of the keys here? Thanks!
  5. Haha. I'm with you. I only use IE8 to update my XP. That said, MU found it quick and it installed without a hitch. It almost seems as if XP is becoming a reliable O/S.
  6. That brings a tear to my eye.
  7. Microsoft Update found all 8. They installed smoothly. I'm cherishing these last few Tuesdays as much as I can.
  8. I've still been manually running my updates. This months picked up fast and installed equally as quick. Before I ran them I turned off my Bitdefender virus protection. All went smooth!
  9. I got all the aforementioned updates; however, kb4463103 was prompted for again after I rebooted and checked. I downloaded it manually and used the trusty /overwriteoem switch and that resolved the issue.
  10. Hey Dave, until you get some replies from the heavy hitters I'll add I do my installs with my virus protection disabled. Also have you tried clearing your temp folder for your updates? The last thing I can think of is check your logs for a clue.
  11. A manual run of the MU picked up all the updates and they all seemed to install fine. However, kb4458318 popped up again after a second run of MU. I manually downloaded that one and ran the trusty /overwriteoem switch and that took care of that.
  12. And yet it worked. Maybe it just ignored the switch? It did not give me any error messages.
  13. dencorso really takes "complete" to a whole new level.
  14. Yup, you've basically got it. As an admin run CMD and from the directory you've downloaded the file to, and after the filename use the switch you've typed. There isn't anything else you need to do before hand. However, full disclosure I don't know if on my PC things would have installed okay or not without the switch. I've been using it out-of-hand because I haven't had a problem any of the times I've used it, and it has helped me solve some repeating kb install problems I've had in the past.
