Cant seem to remove this bastard no matter what i do ! Norton 2003 wont even remove it. Downloaded the "tool" but when it came to the patch i get a "KB823890 set up error box" telling me ensure I have the Cryptografic service running?
Any ideas???????

you may get hand slapped for swearing, but use this solution.
start/run/ and type CMD, then type each line and press enter after each.
net stop cryptsvc.
ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot oldcatroot2.
net start cryptsvc.

now type EXIT to close, and reboot and try your update again

that hasn't showed the way i typed it.At the full stop is the end of each line.

net stop cryptsvc.


ren %systemroot%\system32\catroot oldcatroot2.


net start cryptsvc.
