The Windows Update mechanism still works on XP (I have no hacks installed) as usual...but there are no critical updates found when the search is done.
. . . . . .
You're right Hamluis. I had another self-built XP SP3 computer (2008) lying around with lesser software on it. This morning I powered it on. Installed IE8 and it's security patch KB2925418 manually. After that, KB2922229 and KB2930275, again manually from Update Catalog. Then I decided to enable checking for updates. Bingo! There were some updates (around 10) listed in update window. Checked one only (KB955069), just to give it a try. Installed successfully. Frustrating when thinking the behaviour on the another computer.
Unfortunately Windows Defender couldn't install updates. 80072EFE error!
(I forgot to check the time settings. But I think it is incorrect because I didn't use it since summer. I couldn't check it now because it's on the shelf again. )
