    What is the version of XP you are running and what service pack level?  This update shows to only be for Windows XP Home SP1.  If you are not running that setup then you may want to look and see if the update already shows as installed and is just being presented again.  If that's the case then look at this:

Troubleshoot Windows Update: repeatedly offered update

Also you may want to reset Windows Update and then test again.
