I have a blaster worm, so I downloaded the removal tool. When I try to run it, I am told that I first need to download MS03-26 patch (KB823980). However, I am unable to install this: It starts to configure, but in the middle of the process it simply disappears. I have checked my Add/Remove programs, and it is not there. I have Windows XP Home.

Had the same last year. E-mailed Microsoft and they said to delete a folder called catroot. Then managed to install the patch.
