I have had the same experience. My Update History shows one successful
installation and several prior and subsequent failures. Interestingly,
in "Control Panel/Programs and Features/Installed Updates", KB941649
is not listed as installed. I don't think I care about this update
since it seems like it applies mostly to laptops. However, it keeps
trying to install the update every night which is interfering with my
back-up job. I have tried simply removing it from my update list, but
there is no way to commit the deselection - after unchecking all
boxes, the only action available is to cancel. Is there a registry
entry I can change to stop Vista from trying to install this update?
I am a big fan of Vista and honestly I really had no idea where all
the anti-Vista angst was coming from. This is my first real issue with
Vista Ultimate x64
Intel Core2 Duo E6600
