Malicious Software Removal Tool keeps downloading over and over.

2 posts in this topic

Doing a clean install of Vista Ultimate 32 bit on a laptop and Windows Update keeps downloading and installing the current update to the Malicious Software Removal Tool over and over. I've tried unchecking it and hiding it but in about 10 seconds it pops up again.

Install it and there's no error message, but a short while later Windows Update wants to download and install it again.

I've searched the web for this and found people posting about it doing the same thing as far back as 2006.

Microsoft, this is a bug. FIX IT and stop repeating whatever it is you keep doing that makes it happen time after time. I'd think after 15 years of Windows Update, and this same problem with various downloads over that time, that by now they'd have the issue permanently cured.
