    First step is to verify that KB956708 does not apply to this scenario.

    Second step is to verify the XP SP3 machine can connect to and communicate with the WSUS server using the Client Diagnostic Tool.

    Third step is to review the WindowsUpdate.log to determine the actual client activities during a detection event.
