    823559 Security Update

    I am running Windows 98SE.

    Every day I get a notification of a security update (823559).

    I duly install it, but I get the notification again the next day.

    I have checked the installation history on my computer, and it lists the update as having been installed many times.

    Has anyone else had this?

    Kevin--

    A fix for this currently and often offered by MS personnel monitoring the WU ng for this is to update to DirectX 9b. Download Direct X 9b

    Dear SMBP,

    Thank you for the reply.

    I tried everything, but I still get the same update message.

    I guess I'll have to turn auto update off!

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    I have also installed 823559 seven times since July. I have read SMBP's reply and already have DirectX 9b installed so that won't help. All I can suggest is that from now on when Windows Update suggests I need 823359 I will just ignore it.

    In addition to the KB linked above in this thread on Windows Update repeatedly urging you to download updates you already have, you might take a look at some of the links in the post below to Windows Update fix sites for suggestions:
