I tried to install the update along with a couple of optional updates. It kept telling me the update was successful for KB981852, but not for the optional updates, then when I clicked "check for updates", KB981852 once again appeared as an important update. I then reviewed my update history and it seems that my computer has downloaded and installed KB981852 successfully 7 times between the 12 and 16 August.
Yet still it shows in the update list as an important (required) update...
This makes me wonder whether there is an issue with the KB981852 updates...?
