    Mine installed nine times so far. The security bulletin is full of
    technogibberish. I still don't know what to do. Why does Microsoft created
    these problems? I will just hide the update, since it has been installed
    nine times.

  4. Actually this problem is usually caused by a third-party program.
    Probably unwise.

    Try downloading the update from the download center and installing it in safe mode.
