When I try to install the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool update (
KB890830) I can't install it. I keep getting an installation error code
80246005. Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know what it means?

Thanks in advance.

Hi myrlin522,

See if this information posted by Taurarian helps you to solve the problem:

The instructions mention the DataStorage folder.........this should be
DataStore, not DataStorage.

I wasn't able to fix the problem with the instructions in the link. I called
Microsoft and they walked me through the downloading & installing the update.
Thanks so much for your help.
