It failed because of the extra hyphen between Windows and XP. It should be "WindowsXP" not "Windows-XP". ;)

That's why I only use the KB number when searching. Fewer points of failure.

Google ignores punctuation, so of course it found the term regardless of the errant hyphen. :)

I hate searching for things with Google. I wish they had an advanced mode that doesn't search for related terms and also supported boolean.

Google boolean.

 

@5eraph, errant hyphen? That's in the frigging filename! Stupid MS-Bing.

 

EDIT: I removed the hyphen and this was the result.

Sorry, no results found for: windows xpkb2535512-x86-enu.exe

I usually don't have any trouble with Google ... I type in ...

 

"XP KB XXXXXXX download" ... and the MS download page is usually always there either first or second.

 

... maybe I didn't fully understand the conversation, in that case just disregard !
