I might manually hunt down the patch and install it manually. In closing, Windows Update isn't perfect. Many expect it to be so, but for reasons that we all know, it still has issues.
Add to that the common spyware damage and I'm sometimes surprised we don't reinstall the OS more often.
Recently, I received notification that the latest critical update (KB823353 - Cumulative Security Update for Outlook Express 6 SP1) was ready for download/install (via the small icon in the system tray). I downloaded it an installed (again, via the Microsoft Windows Update icon in the system tray).
After installing, everything seemed fine... until the update icon appeared in the system tray again with the exact same update.
I can not seem to get rid of this update notification now. I have theoretically "downloaded" and "installed" this particular update about 10 times. I have run windows update from the start menu and updated that way, too.
I still have the Automatic Update icon in my system tray, notifying me that the same Outlook Express update (KB823353) is ready for download/install.
Obviously, this is not a HUGE issue, but I'm pretty picky about my computer's performance/appearance and I'd like to remedy the problem.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
