  • This worked excellently.Disactivating the Antivirus didn't yet help. Possibly this will not be necessaryDisactivating a Spy Doctor worked

  • Spyware Doctor is the problem.  Just disable OnGuard fot 15 minutes, and it will install.

  • Thank you very much for this posting.  I, too, was having trouble installing this update.  Although I wasn't getting any error message, it just would say downloaded and would try to install upon shutting down of my p.c.  I tried every thing imaginable.  Then I read this posting and did what you said, disabled my anti-virus program and firewall (and I turned off Windows Defender) and downloaded and installed it again, and this time it worked.  I appreciate your help in this matter.


    I also changed the "Windows Update" option to download automatically, but let me pick a time to install.  That way I can control which programs I want, or don't want.  I hate IE and IE 7 is the worst, so I disabled that.  IE 6 works just fine and without all the drama and error messages.
