Re: KB982331 getting errors

had one item not able to be installed or not recognized as installed. It's
KB982331, "Security Update for the 2007 Microsoft Office System." On my
desktop, I am able to install it on direct download, but not on my laptop.
Also, the Windows Update on my desktop doesn't recognize the update being
installed even though Windows itself says it is.
Any ideas how I can either disable it from being among the updates to be
installed from here on out or fix this error?
My weird solution:
Disconnect from internet and do autoinstall from windows update in control panel and not manual update.
I always have problems with updates and have to manually do about half. Nothing was working for me on this one: manual install (running and saving to desktop then install), disconnect and manual installs, turn off UAC and manual install. However disconnect and autoupdate worked AND THAT NEVER WORKS for me.
