  • 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.

  • 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 Update keeps providing the same 6 updates again and again.

    This is the third time that I am a request for assistance with this problem.

    I have Vista Home Premium, 32-bit sp1.  HP Pavilion PC, about 2 years.  Norton Internet Security, Malwarebytes and Defender on.

    Since September 8, I was offered various updates.  I can't install the 6 following updates:

    I have install, update says that they have been installed successfully. they next day, they are offered again and if I go to view installed updates that are not there, although that still listed as installed with success in the history of the update.  Note: I do NOT receive the error messages.

    The first response to my original message does not understand my problem because he told me to uninstall the updates I had already said were not there.  I followed his other recommendations anyway (try to install the updates in the clean boot state) and it made no difference.

    The second speaker suggested reset components Windows Update (who has not made a difference) and using the system update tool (which apparently, the site said I didn't need).

    Any other ideas?  I'm trying to update my system and do not feel I can do so until that these issues would be resolved.

    Thank you

  • Several Windows updates fail with the same error code 80070081 0 x

    Anyone has any idea why? I just run SFC/scannow and restarted the computer, but no joy.

    Thank you for your help. When I wrote the first time, I had already tried your mentioned basic steps. : D I was troubleshooting computers for friends and family for a long time, and I'm a fan of CCleaner (one of the first things I install on any computer!). Unfortunately, they had not solved the problem.

    I have not run Windows repair tool. It is a work computer, and because my colleague use it almost all the time, I didn't have enough time to play with him. Anyway, he had a program called "Advanced Systemcare v.6" that someone had already loaded. A scan with the program detected and repaired something that solves the problem of failure of Windows Update.

    But I will keep your advice in mind. During the next update Tuesday, if updates not yet once again, I'll try the Windows repair tool.

    Thanks again!
