Malicious Software Removal Tool - Repeat Install

Windows Update repeatedly asks to install the Malicious Software Removal Tool
KB890830. It installs successfully, but soon tells me it is ready to install
again. How do I stop this?

Lots of luck! My automatic updates has been doing that for months. I
go to Microsoft's site and do updates and it shows it was successfully
in stalled. Then a few hours later auto update wants to install it
again.

Microsoft has been no help in resolving this wide spread issue.

Can you cite some statistics that show just how widespread the issue is
and where is the information available, please ?
Thanks.

I thought each month had a new update. Malicious Software is always
evolving so any detection tool is going to need frequent updates. I
don't think this is a problem at all.

Re: Malicious Software Removal Tool - Repeat Install

It appears this is enough of an issue that it requires some attention. I am
having a similar problem with the update (KB92798). It has successfully
installed but the Windows update notification icon constantly remains in the
system tray. I am using Vista 32bit HmPr.

RE: Malicious Software Removal Tool - Repeat Install

Well add my name to the list. After turning off auto updates and manually
updating (it hadn't updated since I installed Vista), I turned on auto
updates again and this KB890830 problem started happening. A search on google
shows a lot of the same thing happening. Hope someone can fix this
(microsoft?)

RE: Malicious Software Removal Tool - Repeat Install

Here is one way:
You might also have Windows set to automatically install updates, which is
the recommended setting for your computer. If you don't want Windows to
install an update, you need to hide it.

Click to open Windows Update.

In the left pane, click Check for updates and then, when Windows finds
updates for your computer, click View available updates.

Right-click the update you don't want to install, and then click Hide
update. The next time you check for updates, the update won't be
automatically selected or installed

RE: Malicious Software Removal Tool - Repeat Install

this worked:
with the update hidden go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/890830.
download the most recient kb890830
go back and unhide the entry in windows update.
when it checks for current downloads it says you are all up to date.
