Yup may want to have a look into the "KB954156.log" file to be found
in the Windows folder.
In case you'll find lines like:
| Windows Media Encoder must be on your machine before this software
| update can be installed. Please install Windows Media Encoder and
| launch this software update again.
Windows Media Encoder has been installed and "uninstalled" somehow.
Since KB954156 is for Windows Media Encoder 9 only, it requires the
installation of Windows Media Encoder 9. In case you don't have the
Encoder installed (any longer), there's no need to install the update.
If the update is still offered to system which does not have WME9
installed (any longer), please try to delete the folder "Windows
Media Components" which is most likely (still) present in the
"Program Files" folder. After deleting the folder (keep it in the
Recycle Bin for a while) run a user defined search on the Windows
Update site (http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
). Is KB954156 still
beeing offered on the Windows Update site?
Have you "moved" the Program Files folder onto another dirve/partition
other than the one on which the Windows folder resides?
