    KB950974 won't install - Error code 80242016

    When Windows Auto update attempted to install this on my system it failed. Since then I have repeatedly tried to install in by downloading directly from the WU website and it tells me that this update does not relate to my OS. It IS a Vista security update and WAU attempted to install it also. Can anyone advise what might be the cause of this? I do receive an error code by have been unsuccessful in tracking it down on WU website. Thanks...........
