yumeyao, you are talking about ie 6 sp1. But ie version in xp sp2 is sp2. No need for that hotfix. We are just including hotfixes for sp2.
And also thanx for sharing. You are welcome to the board.

Maybe you forget tı add some registry entries. You should check update_SP2QFE.inf file in the update folder of the hotfix. You will see "[Product.Add.Reg]" section with lots of reg entries in it. Check if you have included them. Also did u check qfeckecker for hotfix install reports?
Check and report back, i will be glad if i can help. In my turkish update pack, i see no errors and no updates.
