Security update? constantly

  speedbird_zero1 10:13 15 Dec 2003

I am running win98se (quite successfully at the moment) however on a daily basis i am getting a notification from MS that a download is required. I go to the site get and install the download only to get the same message agian next day. Below is the message:-

823559: Security Update for Microsoft Windows
Download size: 305 KB, 1 minute
An identified security issue in Microsoft Windows could allow an attacker to compromise a Microsoft Windows-based system and then take a variety of actions. For example, an attacker could execute code on the system. By installing this update, you can help protect your computer. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

Now this is exactly the same day after day, if i "view installation history" it shows that this update has been installed quite a few times now. Do i really need to keep doing this? I don't particulaly want to stop totally the update notifications but this is becoming annoying.
Any advise would be welcome.

Thank You,

I had the same problem with the patch repeatedly being displayed. Although the patch was supposedly effective / successful in reality it was not. I have no idea why ! Try removing the patch using the "remove software" utility in control panel then reinstall it. It worked for me ! [Not me... the poster to that forum but it sound a viable option.]

OK then, I have just un-installed and subsequently re-installed this patch, i has alledgedly installed correctly, i will know in 24 hours for sure, so i will not yet put the tick of closure on.
Thanks for the rapid help.
