WinXP-pro Update of June 12th causes loop in Loading Windows (during the waving flag display) RRS feed

  • Question

  • After installing the June 12th updates (don't have a list, but there were 10 for me), the microcode boot was normal, but when the Windows Waving Flag appeared, it seemed to do the normal "thermometer" movements for a while, then just stopped.

    Left it running as several attempts with no progress.
    One time (only after the first unsucessful loading of Win pro - xp3) it gave a Black Screen message on next boot that there was an inability to complete the Win Loading and suggested varied F8 options.  I chose to use the "last sucessful" and was able to proceed.

    Windows Update now offers me (likely the same) "new" updates (think the same since this load not likely to have had the June update installed sucessfully).  I don't want to install June"2" as may cause same problem.

    Or has it been fixed?
    TIA
