I think I found an bug in KB928255.

I use a vb-script to map and label networkdrives. After installing the patch,
some Computers don't rename the network mappings.

It seems to only affect computer with has SP2 integrated Windows XP systems.
Systems which have been installed with RTM-WindowsXP aren't affected.

I uninstalled the patch and it worked all fine now.

How can i send this bug to microsoft, to fix this??

If i remove the patch, if have the problem, that it is always promted for
reinstall even if I set the patch to decline....

Can someone help me how to prevent from installing?

The RTM issue is really irrelevant. The patch is not designed for, nor
tested on, XP RTM systems.

The fact that it only affects SP2 /integrated/ systems, and not systems with
SP2 installed from media or WSUS may be relevant.

Have you thorougly tested various methodologies of SP2 installation to
confirm it only affects SP2 /integrated/ systems?

Have you verified that the SP2 machine is fully patched prior to installing
this update?

Call Product Support Services after checking the above notes. If your issues
affects a fully current system, they'll want to know.

If you've approved the update via WSUS, then mark it as "Not Approved", and
run another detection on the client. The new detection will 'unschedule' the

thanks for your answer.

Yes, I created CDs with nlite with all integrated patches and there is the
same result.
I called Microsoft, but I have to open a CALL an pay for it.
Sorry but this is to much ......

I think I will rewrite my scripts, now.

Old Style:

If IsMember(objUser, "Groupname") Then
If FSO.DriveExists("X:\") Then
WshNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive "X:",True,True
End If
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "X:", "\\dvsrv6.intra.auew.de\TNK_Netz$"
End If

New Style:

I will change the networkmapping name dirctly in the Registr

Problem with WSUS:
All Clients store the Updates in a local cache, which I have too clean first.
