Installing Microsoft System Center Essentials 2010 without it failing

Okay, this was irritating. I started with a brand new fresh Windows 2008 x64 R2 install with all windows updates and the IIS and Application Roles installed. I popped in the DVD for SCE 2010 and rolled along and then it failed. Tried a few more times to no avail. After digging through the forums I found the answer. I had to uncheck the Microsoft Update checkbox! WTF MS? That of all things slipped through QC testing? Afterward it installed fine...

Thanks go out to:
