Hi guys, I have two XP Pro(32bit) systems here where Security Update for Windows XP (KB913446) fails to install. Is anyone else having this problem?

It installed fine when I downloaded it (WindowsXP-KB913446-x86-ENU.exe) from the link in the first post. I have to wonder if it failed to update via Microsoft Update because I was using a patched tcpip.sys.

^ I'm using an unpatched TCPIP.SYS. Failed on 2/2 machines via Microsoft Update. Succeeded on 2/2 machines via manual download/install.

Strange :o

FWIW, the patch installs fine via Windows Update on Server 2003 systems. So maybe it's just the XPpro package posted on Windows Update that is corrupted or something?

yea a patched tcpip.sys file will result in failure, u have to download the file manually to make it work it seems, but now you can't patch the tcpip.sys file if you install the patch until xp-antispy comes out with a new version or some other way is around it, any know?

What is tcpip.sys? I was able to install all but one update which failed so now I am curious to know what that is and if that is why I am failing to update it.

EvID4226Patch is the reason why it fails that patch removes the limit of TCPIP connections you can establish. that patch alters the file

TCPIP.SYS

I manually patched tcpip.sys on my system, and it's also failing for me. Something to remember though - A lot of pirated copies of XP come with tcpip already patched.

barfster: What does FWIW stand for?

tcpip patch worked fine for me, i was using the hacked tcpip like others, it does however reset it to 10, you can still change it with the same patch below though:)

Vulnerability in TCP/IP Could Allow Denial of Service (913446): MS06-007 - Important - This update seems to be failing (on XP atleast) when installed via Microsoft/Windows update for some reason. Please use this link and manually install the update. More info @ MS Windows Update Newsgroup

I was just about to ask for help to neowinians, I was getting an error code 0x80242006 while trying to install the patch KB913446 so I tried alternate link from above (Y)

Thanks :)

I would assume "for what it's worth." :cool:

The problem isn't caused by a modified TCPIP.SYS.

I have 2 machines here, both using the original versions that failed on the website, but succeeded manually.

Just check in the newsgroups, no-one can install it from the website.

It looks like one of their patches wasn't tested fully.

Everyone just download the file from their website. That works, it worked for me.
