I picked this one up yesterday -- along with an XP update, but after installation and a restart, XP then told me they were available for download again!  Another triumph for MS?   :(

Funnily enough, the same thing happened to me, but after the second download, it seems to be happy now.   :)

I suspect this situation is one for the 'Left hands and right hands' department.   ::)

Each patch probably requires an individual reboot to register and it looks to me like the department that coordinates the updates, which were written by the O/S and MSIE departments, either didn't test-download the already signed-off patches, or didn't communicate particularly well with the department which maintains the Updates webpages.  That's what I think, anyway, but it's not really my department.   :-X
