    Can't download MSWU-538/Q970553 - is it even needed?

      With latest XML (, XP scans as needing MSWU-538/Q970553.  When I attempt to download, I get 401 Unauthorized.  When I attempt to get this hotfix from Microsoft, they send me a link that needs a password, but they do not give me a password.

      http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=970553 says last review August 13, 2009, but NetChk says bulletin released 8/12/2011.

      The above bulletin says the hotfix is for 2003 Server SP2 or 64-bit XP Pro SP2.  The scanned machine is 32-bit XP SP3.

      The reason given for the patch being needed is windowssystem32wbemmsiprov.dll version 5.1.2600.0 < 5.1.2600.5803.
