Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Tried to install KB2754296 (Microsoft Security Essentials Client Update Package) and it just stalls. It says installing update 1 of 1... but nothing happens. It just sits there. The status bar does not change. It has shutoff Microsoft Security Essentials. If I mouse over the install icon it says Microsoft is installing updates 0% complete.
Any suggestions on how to get this update installed would be appreciated.
Tried to cancel the update. The button responded but nothing happened. I then tried to shutdown and Windows tried install the update during shutdown. It just hung and I finally reset the machine and then booted into safe mode and restored to the restore point before the update.
Will now hid the update until someone tells me how to get it to work.

Sorry, I havenot noticed that there isnot an official way to download it separately. You can try to rename SoftwareDistribution folder under %Windir%, then install this update by Windows Updates again, if still no go, please download the latest version of MSE at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/products/security-essentials.
