Even though you and one or two others in this TBB discussion may very well have managed to now pick the correct file, possibly a good many ordinary WinXP users won't now bother with it, having lost confidence in Microsoft's ability to provide a trustworthy correcting file.
It's simply not good enough to say that 'Windows XP SP3 x86 non-embedded' is the appropriate file to use, without you also naming the patch file that goes with that, as there's not just one, single patchfile. They go by different names. The same clarification needs to apply to the other five or six versions of WinXP as well.
Normally, when we do file downloads of any kind we put our trust in the supplier that the name of the file matches its precise function. For an organisation like Microsoft to have (apparently) mixed up the WinXP versions with the different filenames, in a situation where widespread alarm has been caused by the malware for which the patch(es) is required, is pretty bad form, in my view.
