    When I install this update I get an error message saying that it can not be
    installed. I forget what it said exactly, but it said if I don't have
    windows streaming media installed don't worry about it. Well if I don't have
    it installed, how am I going to get rid of it when I go to the windows update
    website or is the solution at this point to just let it go?

    I would be glad to hear of better solutions, but I have
    found seen this on Windows 2000 server systems where
    Windows Media Services were once installed, but where
    it was uninstalled incompletely (or just rudely deleted
    rather than uninstalled). There are two (at least) recourses.
    You could install Windows Media Services in order to then
    gracefully uninstall it (yea, agreed, excessive), or you could
    look at the mssecure.xml file and see which of the trigger
    items it is finding telling it that this is installed. (Run MBSA
    and this file will be left in the MBSA install location).
    The flaw in this last approach is that the critical files may
    actually still be present, possibly exploitable.
