"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

From the times I've encountered this, the problem has been that the update installed improperly automatically by way of Automatic Updates. I've solved it by going to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. Then check the "Show Updates" checkbox in the top right and find the offending Update and uninstall it. Then try running the KB885836 security update again.
Look in C:\Windows for KB885836.log, and attach it here please, if the above doesnt help.....
