    Hey Hotfix team,

    The following hotfixes refuse to install on a fresh XPSP3 slipstreamed installation:

    – KB922120 (LLTD Responder) which I need urgently on my networked machines

    – KB923800 (Offline Crash Diagnostic)

    – KB924732 (Change Analysis Diagnostic)

    – KB895961 (Xbox 360 Media Center Extender support)

    – XPS Essentials Pack (which I need urgently)

    – KB938127 for IE6 and IE7 which is a critical VML security KB!!!!!!!!!

    – KB889333 and KB933873 for Internet Explorer 7

    Please, what is taking Microsoft so long to refresh these hotfixes? Please update them so they install on Windows XP SP3.

    I checked several fixes, it shows that these updates are scheduled to be included with Windows XP Service Pack 3. Therefore, it is not necessary to install the fix on Windows XP SP3.
