2003 machine is: 6.0.3790.1830 as mine

I also found this same kb did the exact same for me. I finally got it to install as a last resort and after losing some hair by going to Safe mode and doing it in there. I have no idea what is causing this and I was not about to test and find out as this is a production machine and cannot afford down time.
