    Hey Dejan

      Looking at the documentation. The version included with Sp3 is  " "


    1.) I would check the version of the numbers included in this Sp3 notes.Available here. If the signatures are Microsoft. Excalty. There should be no problem.


    Spmsg.dll.ref 6.3.0013.0

    Spupdsvc.exe.ref 6.3.0013.0


    2)a) How ever I would consider doing a malware scan, and an root kit scanner.


    b) And also possibly check the %windir%\svcpack.log to see if there were any errors.


    c) Also checking the \%windir%\system32\WindowsUpdate.log to see why the Kb was re-installed.


    d) I would also look in the $hg_mig$\folder to check the sources of the Kb. If the Cat is signed by microsoft


    3) You could also run the system verifier /reset from a command window.


    4) Alternatively you can also re-install over your installation. If you suspect malware.

    Disadvantage you need to have your Sata driver available on a floppy disk.


    Hopefully this will help you out.
