If the file was updated via means other than the patch, it is very conceivable that we would detect the patch as 'Effectively Installed', while Windows Update would offer the patch.
According to the Microsoft publication, the expected file version is 12.0.10325.499.
If you contact support directly, we can collect some log files in order to analyze the reason for which we are considering the patch effectively installed.
Vista wouldn't show the file version number, so I copied it to an XP system and the version number is 12.0.10325.499. However, as I mentioned in the original post, the date differs from what Microsoft says it should be.
The only way it could have been updated is from Windows Update or NetChk.
Also, the Sept 13 update (MSWU-546) has the same file version number but a different file date (different than MSWU-562 and different than that system).
In any case, I think I'll just let Windows Update install it and see if the version number or date changes.
After letting Windows Update apply the patch, the OUTLFLTR.DAT file still has the same older date. Strange, but I'm not going to mess with it any more. I'll mark this as answered.
