Here's a heads up :

I've seen several systems which, from the control panel, show the 
installation of kb899588 (MS05-039 patch), but they still test as 
vulnerable using the various tools.

Windows update reports "No Critical Updates Available".

The "fix" has been to manually uninstall kb899588, reboot, then manually 
install the update (from the Microsoft Download Center, not 
WindowsUpdate), and reboot again.

Then they test as secure.

Anyone else seeing this, or know of a cause?
