Nachi - Hotfix KB823980 not displaying in Add/Remove Programs



Out of 25 systems I installed the Hotfix KB823980 today, 2
will not take it. I verify in Add/Remove programs that it
installed. I'm logged in as Admin, I've rebooted. When I
run the hotfix on these 2 pc's, it zips thru fast which
made me question if it installed. If I run the patch w/
a /L (which Lists all hotfixs installed) it show KB823890
as installed. Do I need to removed something from the
Registry in order to get this to install properly?

*****This is info I got the MS knowlegebass, but it's not
helping me *****************
Upon successful infection, this worm improperly installs
the 823980 (MS03-026) security patch on infected computers
by first determining the operating system and then
downloading the associated security patch for that
operating system. The improper installation of the files
and registry settings that are associated with the 823980
(MS03-026) security patch may leave infected computers
vulnerable to the issues that are documented in Microsoft
Security Bulletin MS03-026 and may cause problems when you
try to install the Microsoft version of the 823980 (MS03-
026) security patch. The following symptoms may indicate
that the 823980 (MS03-026) security patch was installed by
the Nachi worm:
There is no entry for the 823980 (MS03-026) security patch
in Add or Remove Programs tool. For example, Windows XP
Hotfix - KB823980 does not appear in the Add or Remove
Programs list. This problem remains even after you install
the Microsoft version of the 823980 (MS03-026) security
patch. This problem occurs because the worm installs the
823980 (MS03-026) security patch in "no archive" mode. An
administrator can install the 823980 (MS03-026) security
patch in "no archive" mode by using the /n switch.
