Perhaps I have not made myself clear.

What I am wondering is why micro$oft should nag me to install the
same numbered patch everyday this month.

In each case the Installation was successful

Beats me

It means that the installation was not successful, even if the tiny brain of
the installer program thinks it is. You could reinstall DirectX and try
again, or kill two birds with one stone and update to the latest version of
DirectX (If you haven't already).

They already did that with WinXP Service Pack 1.

You authorised Microsoft to make updates to your security and digitla rights
management without any further consent required from you.

Linux......It's the way to escape from the MS operating system chain-gang.

Grow up woger.

There's support for it. You just have to pay for that.

That could be why your update is not installing correctly.

Then you may find that you can no longer update your windows system as this
service pack is likely to be pre-req for much that comes after.

This is my problem with Microsoft....if you dont' accept the changes they
mandate - whatever they are - you've just "orphaned" your system.

Not so all the other updates that came out after the service pack
have been installed no problem at all
