Known issue with this security update
When a user visits Windows Update, the Step-by-Step Interactive Training application is continuously reoffered, and the installation is always unsuccessful. Note
The symptoms occur when the user installs the Step-by-Step Interactive Training application that includes Lrun32.exe and then applies security update 923723.
Consider the following scenario:
- The user uninstalls the Step-by-Step Interactive Training application.
Note Because the Lrun32.exe file was modified by security update 923723, this operation leaves the updated file on the computer.
- The user enables the display of updates in the Add or remove programs dialog box.
- The user uninstalls the Step-by-Step Interactive Training security update.
Note The user must know which security update is associated with the Step-by-Step Interactive Training application. This operation makes the updated Lrun32.exe revert to the original version.
- The next time that the user visits Windows Update, the Step-by-Step Interactive Training application is reoffered. However, the installation is unsuccessful because the version of the Lrun32.exe file that is located on the computer is a partially installed version of the Step-by-Step Interactive Training application.
In this scenario, the user is reoffered the Step-by-Step Interactive Training application every time that the user goes to Windows update.
