I have installed this update 3 times now, twice as an automatic update and once from Windows Update web site. However it still comes up every time in the list of recommended critical updates.
Each time the installation history shows the install as successful.
How can I confirm that the update has 'taken' (without deliberatley catching the worm) ?

You know the old saying, if it stops working give it a thump ? Well, my eldest son's CDRom drive stopped working a little while ago, kept saying that no disk was inserted even when there was one. I tried removing and reinstalling it etc, but nothing I did made any difference.
Yesterday I was moving his PC and laid it on his bed, came back a few minutes later after hearing a loud crash. Son No.2 had started bouncing on the bed, bounced the PC right off the bed and onto the floor.
Miraculously, everything still works, including the previously faulty CD drive.
