    First, sorry about my bad english.

    My customer has Windows Small Business Server 2003, and I was last week
    to make installation Microsoft updates to the server.
    Every other update went just fine, but KB971026 (Update For Microsoft
    Forefront Client Security) uninstalled the whole FCS-program, and after
    that it could not re-install FCS to the server.
    I rebooted the server two times, and tried to install FCS to the server,
    but no luck.
    If I just click MP_AMBITS32.MSI-file, the installation will start, but
    it also will end to error "Service 'Microsoft Forefront Client Security
    Antimalware Service' (FCSAM) failed to start. Verify that you have
    sufficient priviledges to start system services". Then there is Retry-
    and Cancel-buttons available to press. Retry-button gives that error
    again, and Cancel is only way to get out of this error.
    When this error occurs, I went also to the Services, and tried to
    manually start this service, but it said that service started and stopped.
    I am installing this with Administrator-account.
    I also downloaded Microsoft Catalog service a new installation package
    FCS-program (KB971026), and this is exe-file, and when I will double
    click that, the installation will begin, but it also will end to error
    "Microsoft Forefront Client Security -- Installation failed. See log
    'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront\Client
    Security\Client\Logs\mp_ambits.log' for more information". I have been
    check the log-file, but haven't seen anything weird.
    I didn't paste the log-file here, because it is really big, about 460kb,
    but I will if someone needs it.

    I allready make some google search with this problem, and found some
    same kind of problem, but they didn't help me.

    If someone need more information, I will happily give it, just ask.

    Thanks for advanced, if someone can help me with this case.
