    I've been trying for weeks to install this update, along with a MS SQL 2008
    and nVidia nForce Networking Controller. To keep things simple, I only try to
    install the Outlook Junk Filter when testing.
    I've read and tried every solution I can find on this forum, nothing seems
    to be working. DCOM is started, RPC is started, WI is started.
    At every attempt, Windows Installer creates a restore point, the progress
    crawer goes to about 10%, then quickly to about 90%, then fails, with the
    nebulous code 80070641.
    All updates were always successful until 5/16/09, when the nVidia started to
    fail, then updates , imporant or optional, randomly failed; some eventually
    succeeded, like MS SQL 2008 SP1 after 4 attempts. Others, like 970012 have
    been failing since 6/12 (the previous Junk mail filter 905866 installed fine
    on 5/16).
    NOTE: I just realized that, looking at the install history, the SQL 2008
    SP1 is installed, but still showing up on the list of updates; the nVidia
    driver on the list, when selected as the only update, gives an error message
    that it's already installed.
    Why do they continue to show on the list?
    So, my only uninstallable at this point is the Outlook 2007 Junk Mail for
    June, KB970012.
    Anyone have any thoughts?
