    In October I auto sucessfully updated Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
    KB890830. Then in November it tried to do it again and failed with a error
    code of 0X800706BE. Do I have a problem? I also noticed a folder( folder name
    is 24668c9c514933523a54cdfd3d) in my C drive that is not in my desk top
    computer C drive. Inside the folder was two files,mrtstub.exe and mrt.exe.p.
    I sent the folder to the recycle bin, look in again and nothing is in the
    folder now. I restored the folder and still nothing in it. It was created the
    same day the update failed, could that have created it? and do I still nee
    the folder for anything? Thank you for any help you can give me.

    Idownloaded it four times and everytime it appeared to download OK but when
    Ielected RUN it would start and lock up with 4 bars displayed on the progress
    line. I also looed at the update history and it does not indicate the manual
    load was attempted. Any ideas?

    I did what you asked , it appeared to download OK but when I selected RUN it
    would start and lock up with 4 bars displayed on the progress bar. I tried
    this 4 times with the same results. Also I looked in the update history and
    it has no indication that the last 4 loads ever happened. Folder is still
    there on the C drive. Any ideas?

    1. Try running it (a) offline and (b) with your anti-virus application
    temporarily disabled.

    2. Checking for Hijackware which may be causing the problem:

    When all else fails, HijackThis v1.99.1
    (http://aumha.net/downloads/hijackthis.zip) is the preferred tool to use.
    It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware. **Post
