Microsoft patches fail on infected Windows – from ZDnet

April security fixes for Windows will not install if the user’s machine is infected with the Alureon rootkit.

The company’s latest security patches, released on April 16, will spot the rootkit if present and refuse to continue with installation. The Alureon rootkit was responsible for crashes in February’s security updates, including Blue Screen of Death errors for XP users due to the way it interacted with the KB977165 patch, which required kernel access. –end paste from

So I ponder, if ‘they’ can’t fix this….who you gonna call?
