  1. Hello,

    I have a computer with windows 7 and windows update is trying for some
    time to install the kb973923 update but fails with an 800706be error. I
    tried to google the error but I can't get any solution to the problem.
    Can anybody help me?

    Are you running a 3rd party firewall ?
    What is the installed antivirus/security suite ?

    I'm fairly certain that KB973923 is only offered to systems that have
    previously installed a vulnerable version of the Microsoft Visual C++
    2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package.

    " Note The Microsoft Download Center update KB numbers for Visual C++
    Redistributable packages differ from the SMS, ConfigMgr, WSUS and MU
    update KB numbers. The full versions of the fixed Visual C++ 2005 and
    2008 redistributable packages (KB973544, KB973551, and KB973552) are
    listed on the Microsoft Download Center only as these are full new
    versions of the products. The updates listed on SMS, ConfigMgr, WSUS,
    and MU (KB973923, KB9739234) are updates only for customers who have
    previously installed vulnerable versions of the Visual C++
    redistributable packages. These updates are not the versions on the
    download center. Microsoft does not recommend customers redistribute any
    version other than the full versions that can be downloaded from the
    Microsoft Download Center (KB973544, KB973551, and KB973552). "

    The below Security update is the full, *fixed* Version of the Microsoft
    Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package that already
    includes KB973923, as it was released on 9/20/2010.

    It will *not* update the installed Version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005
    Service Pack 1. Apparently, it replaces it after it's uninstalled from
    Programs & Features, and then this update is installed -

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL
    Security Update

    *-343-* FDNY
