    Hello:

    I have automatic Windows Update turned on. Over the last 10 days, I have
    been getting notification that there's an update available (KB896688). Even
    after installing it and getting notified that the update was successful, it
    shows up again after an hour.

    How can I install it once and for all and not get these duplicate
    notifications?

    Thanks.

  2. Same here. Also my windows installer fails (see message below). Did not
    figure out if these problems are related yet.

    Guus:

    I talked to Microsoft Tech Support.

    Even though I was logged in as a user who is part of the Administrator
    group, it seemed that there were some privilege issues.

    So, on the advice of the Technical Support person (he was extremely helpful
    and courteous), I logged in as Administrator and updated the patch. It went
    away!

    Let me know if it works for you. Otherwise, I can send you the instructions
    the Tech Support person wanted me to go through.

  7. Doesn't seem to solve the issue for me, but didn't restart yet. And the
    second part, does it also apply to "My Computer"?.
