    AMD Athlon upgrade from Windows Update

    I have one driver that Windows Update reckons needs installing on my machine (Which has an XP2500+ CPU) - an AMD Processor Update. Whenever I try and install it, the installation fails. Anyone know whta is gong on, or if there is a fix?

    98 SE neeeded an Athlon update cos os a USB driver error on AMD chips over 350 speed.
    Without it, USB didn't work (dont ask me why...dunno) and AGP was dead too.
    thats from my memory ...quite proud of that!

    XP didnt need it tho
