I seem to have an issue with a stuck critical update that keeps saying that it is updated then a few minutes later says it needs to be installed again even after reboot.

I have read a few things and I downloaded a Compontent Checker Tool per this article....
http://dotnet.org.za/thea/archive/2004/08/06/3213.aspx

that basically I ran the first option
"Perform analysis of your machine and automatically determine the release version"
it came back "UNKNOWN"  then I tried the second option....
"Perform analysis against a selected version." and chose "MDAC 2.1 SP2"
and gave me the following screen at http://www.tellmehowyoureallyfeel.com/tempstuff/mdac.jpg

 I'm wondering if I can just install MDAC 2.8 and be done with it or will this cause me issues with my exchange server.  

Any ideas?

Mdac plays no part in the operation of Exchange, so you will have no issues installing that on the server.
