I check Windows Update every day. For the past three days I get repeated updates for:
Windows Vista Service Pack1 KB936330.
I have already downloaded & installed this fourteen times.
Please assist me and explain what this is?
Should I stop installing this update?

I have this same problem EVERY time I format my computer, so if you wipe your comuter often do yourself a favor and burn both Service Pack's onto a DVD and always install them manually right after window's does it's first set of updates (it won't work before that) since that update will NEVER work. I found simply uninstalling the update, restarting, and using the standalone installer (link above) work's perfectly fine for me though. I had no need of the Fix It.
