    Using WinXP Home. All patches, updates etc are current.

    I've downloaded and installed MS03-026: Security Update for Windows XP
    (823980): several times; did at least one system roll-back to before the
    installation; followed the instructions about deleting the Windows Update
    Folder etc; downloaded and installed WindowsXP-KB823980-x86-ENU.exe etc etc

    And still when I go to the Windows Update site, I'm told that I need to
    download and install "MS03-026: Security Update for Windows XP (823980)".

    Is this thing installed or not? How do I tell? And how do I make it stick?

    Note: 822925 and 823718 installed without any problems. 823980 seems to be
    the trouble-maker.

    Please be advised that the folks at Microsoft are aware of
    this issue and are investigating why this happens on some
    computers and not others.
