    I am apparently unable to install the above update. I am prompted to do so
    and it says it's been installed successfully but a minute later is asking me
    to do it again. Same thing when I switch off - machine says it's installed
    successfully and then powers off but the next day it's still there like
    Groundhog Day! Any ideas on a fix?

    Hi. Did you saw that update is downloading? If you, try to turn
    Windows Update off and then turn it on.

    Regards, Dims

    I am having the same problem and tried to turn automatic update on and off.
    Still shows the same need to update the malicious update software for July.
    Yes, it downloads the software each time and I have 10 or more successful
    updates of this update.

    I'm having a problem with this too.
    In my case it has installed, but when I restart my laptop, it hangs for 35
    seconds after the startup screen. System event log shows a disk failure. As
    my laptop was only 2 weeks old, the supplier fitted a new disk FOC and I
    spent days reinstalling all the s/w etc. All ran fine no problems until
    KB890830 came down to install, then I was back at the start again. By
    removing the the fix, ( no problem with this) The laptop returns to its
    normal speedy self. Any ideas?
    It's not a serious issue but a nucience all the same. No problem with 4
    other machines I have this on. All are running Intel proc's and genuine MS
    software very similar builds of HW and Apps.
