Hi,

perhaps you've downloaded and installed the custom MSN release of IE8:

Please remove IE8:

When you remove Internet Explorer 8, your earlier version of Internet Explorer is restored with your customizations (such as add-ins, Favorites, and your home page).

Then please read: "HOW TO solve IE8 installation problems":

If still no joy...

Visit the Microsoft Virus Solution and Security Center for resources and tools to keep your PC safe and healthy.  If you are having issues with installing the update itself, visit Support for Microsoft Update for resources and tools to keep your PC updated with the latest updates.
