windows xp windows update is broken

m$ have broken windoz update for clean (re)installs of windoz xp

this is because windoz xp (and windoz xp sp2) come with internet explorer 6 which is no longer supported by *.windows.com sites including update.windows.com

so after a clean windows xp (re)install you must now 

  • get ie8 installer and install it 
  • get wxp sp3 and install it 

then windows update should work
