You have to manually approve the Windwos Malicious Update in order for any
other updates that were released after it to be available to install.
August 2008 Malicious Update Was automatically downloaded. Workstation, or
server, doesn't automatically install it. Even though the AU is configured
to do so. In other environments: SAAZ say, Same issue. In other
environments such as WSUS: With a setting to approve all MS Critical Updates.
If you don't approve the Malicious Update; none of the others in the chain
after it will install until you do.
