Fixing Windows Update in XP SP3

Michael Horowitz in a CNET posting wrote:Bad news: Service Pack 3 for Windows XP, or one of the subsequent patches, breaks Windows Update. Not all the time, but often enough that I got burned twice.

Good news: Microsoft offers free technical support for Windows Update and that support provided a solution to my problem.

I haven't seen this problem myself, but it's something to watch out for. There are several possible solutions listed in the posting and comments.

Well, I know WU is working OK for me here since I DID receive the update that broke my Zonealarm :?
