Check the Microsoft update site and run a "custom" install rather than the "express" option.

If KB954430 appears on the list - expand the item description and you should find a small check box at the end of the description - "do not show this item again"
Checking this will stop it appearing in future updates and stop you downloading it by mistake.

It can always be unchecked if necessary.
