    I have installed this update for my visual studio 2008 more than 16 times in
    the last week or so and although it says it was successful it remains as a
    notification that it is to be installed on my Windows vista ultimate, why?
    How can I get rid of it from the notification status as it is suppose to be
    important and I now do not know if any truly important updates require
    installation as I now ignore the tray icon!
    Your help with this 2nd posting of this problem would be greatly appreciated
    so that my security is no longer compromised by Microsoft's vista updating

    your local Microsoft subsidiary. There is no-charge for support calls that
    are associated with security updates. When you call, clearly state that

    above number and ask to be transferred to the "Consumer IE queue" (which is
