    For Windows Server 2003.

    This is a standard Windows Update that I try to install but get a message
    that it failed to install. I can't find any source to tell me why it won't or
    what I can do about it. I am not getting an error code of any sort - it is
    just listed under "not installed" when I get my update installation screen at
    the end of the installs.

    Can anyone help please?

    I downloaded the update manually from:

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...8a-a5ce-4f06-bf07-8cafa16e7a59&displaylang=en

    Ran it, and then ran Check Updates (from Windows website) and the update is
    still logged as not Installed!

    Did you reboot the Server after manually installing this Update which needs a reboot
