RE: Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool - July 2008 (KB890830)
I'm having a problem with this too.
In my case it has installed, but when I restart my laptop, it hangs for 35
seconds after the startup screen. System event log shows a disk failure. As
my laptop was only 2 weeks old, the supplier fitted a new disk FOC and I
spent days reinstalling all the s/w etc. All ran fine no problems until
KB890830 came down to install, then I was back at the start again. By
removing the the fix, ( no problem with this) The laptop returns to its
normal speedy self. Any ideas?
It's not a serious issue but a nucience all the same. No problem with 4
other machines I have this on. All are running Intel proc's and genuine MS
software very similar builds of HW and Apps.
Life is too short, grab everything you can and ENJOY
