Error installing update for Microsoft Forefront

I have a server that is Server 2008 x64.  It has the client for Microsoft Forefront Client Security installed.  It has been showing that it needed to update the client, but every time I told it to run, it would fail.

I found this in the Application log:

Application ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront\Client Security\Client\Antimalware\MSASCui.exe’ (pid 3304) cannot be restarted – Application SID does not match Conductor SID..

 

And this in the update history:

Update for Microsoft Forefront Client Security (KB956280)
Installation date: ‎3/‎25/‎2009 2:23 PM
Installation status: Failed
Error details: Code 643
Update type: Important
This patch  updates the Microsoft Forefront Client Security Anti-Malware Agent.

 

I started to do a little bit of searching on the “Application SID does not match Conductor SID..” and saw that it comes from the restart manager.  With that nugget of info, I went and stopped all the Forefront services, and ran the update again:
