Downloaded and installed the update today (again) with the same kernel32.dll error
Again was fixed using recovery console to copy kernel32 off the xp cd. slightly different result this time, now xp security centre is telling me zone alarm is turned off (which it 100% is not).
This is f*****g annoying. My system specs:
MSI RS480M2-IL S939
A64 x2 4800 (not oclocked or anything)
xfx 6800gt (again not oclock)
2x 1gb ram (generic but tested with mem test, not faulty)
New 700w psu
2 x Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 80GB (no longed in raid as msi raid sucked)
Compro/videomate DTV 300 (i think, again works fine)
xp home sp2 (genuine not copy) with all prior updates
packard bell backup utility
realtek sound manager
nvidia taskbar widget
like i said, i get a bsod once the update is installed, when i restore the kernel32.dll from the xp cd, i get xp back along with the notice to install the update, so system restore and add/remove programs doesn't apply.
