    After the passle of updates from Microsoft the other day, there remains one
    that will not install. It reports installed, so I get no error code, but
    after a few minutes, it asks to be installed again. I had this happen before
    about a year ago, but I can't remember how I fixed it. Any help out there?

    I kill it?

    It looks like I am not alone.... a lot of people seem to be having the same
    issue, but no one has posted a solution, not to mention anyone responding to
    my post at all (but me :) )

    I don't think it matters, but my system is WinXP Pro sp3 and Office 2007
    Enterprise. I have been getting all updates auto installed without a hitch
    for the past year until this one. Of about 10 updates in this last major
    download, all have installed properly except this one. Any help at all would
    be appreciated.

  4. I suggest you start by manually downloading the update from the Microsoft
    Download Center. Reboot to safe mode to install the downloaded update. Reboot
    back to normal mode, then visit the Microsoft Update web site and see if it
    still thinks the update is needed.

    Post back if this doesn't help.
