Constantly offered the same updates

For the last two months, a notice appears telling me that there are updates ready to install.  After closing the evening, I let the machine go through the installation process.  However, in the morning, the notice of update is still in place.  The specific uupdates are KB 979909 KB 982524 KB 982168.  How can I get to install them or how can I get rid of them entirely (since they seem to have little interest in my surgery)?

  • Windows Vista update, constantly offering the same updates

    Well, the title of my post was just to make things seem worse than they really are. But I think it's a bug, not less.

    I just installed Windows Security Essentials. "Windows Update" keeps me showing that there are both updates optional available through the installation of "Windows Security Essentials". They are updated definition for this software. They are two 3.7 MB. KB, KB2310138, numbers are both the same, but the details see the numbers of different virus definition. The definition of a 1.97.1086.0 and the other is 1.97.840.0. If I install one updates it installs correctly and everything is fine, except that Microsoft Update tells me there is 1 additional optional upgrade for me to install which is annoying and misleading. If I install "both" the KB2310138 updated simultaneously or in succession he confused Windows Update all together and go back to square 1 saying that there is 'optional' 2 updates I can install it. I don't know what is happening, but there is definitely a bug in the middle of all this chaos.

    Maybe someone could tell me if these "Windows Security Essentials" definition updates are cumulative, so that if you later you don't need all the updates of prior definition or are non-cumulative? Thank you.

  • Updated continuously offers the same updates, which I've already refused

    I prefer to choose what updates I receive.  No, I never use "automatic updates".  I don't have Office 2007.  Whenever I turn on my computer updated tells my "new updates are available"... but it's the same update, I uncheck every time.  Is it possible to set this kind accepts updates updates thatI don't WANT OFFICE 2007 and managed to stop offering the same thing repeatedly.  It's a waste of time and if there is no way to do leave offer the same update I still refuse... SHOULD THERE BE!

    I need a frame that says: "if I rejected this particular update.  STOP ASKING ME!.

    If you do not want to install an update via windows update, right-click the update, and click Hide update

    The update you selected will be hidden, and windows appear yet again for this update notifications

  • Vista update repeatedly offers the same updates

    Successful installation KB2478663 & KB2518870, then a few minutes later was offered the same updates. I installed these 2 updates 20 times, always with success! How can I stop this from happening? This also happens with the new KB 2533523 & 2468871 Ko.

    I didn't have that, but I just noticed for the first time in weeks, I don't have updates pending! It seems that something cured my problem so I was away for 5 days?

    In any case, I'll see how long this lasts. Thanks for the help.

  • Repeatedly offered the same update

    Windows Update keeps trying to install the same update (KB981852) again and again. Whenever update is a new update, downloads and installs it. He says that the update has been successfully installed. When the dialog box is closed, a new dialog box appears and wants to download the same update. This is repeated 10 times and I can't seem to stop trying to install this update.

    First of all, it's a little strange that answer appears PA bear prior to a post submitted more than 12 hours. before him. Also, it is strange that I never was warned of his assignment until I was informed that it was marked as a response, so I never had the opportunity to react before it has been marked as an answer.

    My bad for not specifying not what operating system it has produced, but a quick search on Google for the update number of, whowas in my post, would have revealed that this is a update of security for Windows XP (mine is 32-bit). The machine is the free version of Comcast of Norton Security Suite installed and is therefore always up to date. Norton manages spyware blocking (although the Defender is much less than it is in any case). And of course, Norton provides the firewall (although I had to manually turn off the Windows Firewall three times after installing Norton; it was before installing the update above). It was a totally clean, after being shaped and test of surface, installed Windows XP Home OEM from an installation disc (I am a member of the Microsoft Partner Network). There are three other machines Windows XP here (2 with Pro) and the other with the House, all the 32 bits that had recently reinstalled OS which has not experienced this problem when the same update has been installed on them and all had Comcast of Norton installed before the offered update version. It's news to me that there is a toll free number to get free assistance for the security updates, it seems to be a well-kept secret, that I can find no mention of this inyour research support, on or off the Microsoft Web site.

    Yet, none of the foregoing is an answer to my question, as seems to be preferred on the Microsoft Forums, unless it is summarily assumed that the applicant is a fool, then all the possible solutionsobvious are specified, even when the applicant stated that he had tried these thingsbefore asking for help.

    In all cases, the problem seems to have been resolved by simply saying to Windows Update to stop advising me of the update.

  • Windows Update, offering the same updates


    I am running Windows Vista Home premium 64-bit
    I did a factory of my computer reset today and have been involved in the update of windows for some time now.
    I am facing two problems with windows update:
    1 - the first is that Windows update keeps giving me the same important updates 3 over and over
    -Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista for x 64 systems
    -Update for Windows Vista for x 64-based systems (KB971029)
    -Windows Search 4.0 for windows Vista x 64-based Systems (KB940157)
    It has been the installation of the updates successfully and I get the green icon in windows update, but after 'check updates', I always get the same updates.

    I tried to pass by the troubleshooting suggested to this page on renaming the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution, but with no result...
    2. via the properties of my computer, I see that I have Service Pack 1
    Given that windows update will not provide Service Pack 2, I downloaded manually via the Download Center and tried to install it. but I get a message saying that the Service Pack 1 is installed.
    Please help me and thanks in advance.

    Thanks for your reply,

    However, the computer has a hardware problem that required me to reformat the first time is when the issue of the update happened, I had to solve the problem and again the reformat...
    I have corrected the problem and that's good
    Thanks again and sorry for the inconvenience.

    Is what update (KBxxxxxx)? To find this point, go to add/remove programs and check the show updates checkbox. Scroll to the bottom of the list and identify that day it is. It is very probably the faulty update. Now, let's try to go to windows update ( and updates from there. Install all updates and see if the problem repeats. If this is the case, then look for the KBxxxxxx in Microsoft download center ( and install it from there.
