Sorry. I'm afraid I don't have one of those - at least not yet. . . .
If I DID have a "Smokin' Hole in The Foot" award, (Hey! That's not a bad name!), today's post would definitely be a contender.
Today's post is about a Windows Update / Microsoft Update error: WindowsUpdate 80070103 - WindowsUpdate dt000
According to Microsoft's KB article 952032:
This issue occurs if the following scenarios are true:
The "workaround" suggested by Microsoft is to "hide" the offending update so it does not get offered again.
- Windows Update or Microsoft Update tries to install a driver a second time for an additional piece of identical hardware such as a graphics adapter.
- Windows Update or Microsoft Update tries to update a currently installed driver to an unsuitable version of that driver.
. . . . Say WHAT?!
Strange, I thought that this was the entire reason behind Windows Update in the first place - it (supposedly) scans your system for needed updates, grabs them, and then installs them.
I would have thought it would have skipped it the 2nd time. At least it caught itself and threw an error!
Oh, and by the way, if any of YOU would like to make naming suggestions for my "stupidity" award, please post them here and/or e-mail 'em to me.
What say ye?
