KB-2639658 fixit serious bug in XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • After applying KB-2639658 fixit in XP, I noticed automatic updates prompted me to install 2 older (2010) security updates for fonts, kb-972270 and 982132

     

    So I made a genius guess it had something to do with the fixit I applied the day before, so I insta;lled the 2 security updates, then re-applied the fixit, then did a manual Windows Update, and sure enough the 2 security updates showed up again, I did not apply them assuming they undo  the fixit I applied.

     

    Seems to be a bug in XP, no issue in W7

    Anyone know anything about this or had it happen to you.?

  • Thanks Marcus.

     

    "You will be unable to install these reoffered updates. The reoffering is a detection logic issue. Users who have previously applied both security updates successfully can ignore the reoffer."

     

    Actually they do install successfully after applying the fixit, that is my concern. It shows them installed in my Windows Update history as successful, and dated After I applied the fixit.
