Of couse it is in updates window! Unless ... a newer update has been installed that makes this failed update unnecessary

I have SpywareBlaster running on all three of my computers .... it has never interfered with updates.

Well, don't ask me how, but it did pop up again a bit later. I don't know if SpywareBlaster had anything to do with it, but this time I disabled it and everything seemed to go okay.
