Windows 7: Same Windows Updates reinstalling on shutdown

Same Windows Updates reinstalling on shutdown

Sorry if this is a repeat but only went back about 15 pages on the posts. I have Windows 7 Professional and I keep getting the same updates installed at shutdown. I looked at them and most (although not all) are related to the Enterprise version we have of Windows Office 2007 (our government agency has a group license for this software and it is registered!!!). First it was "Installing updates 1 of 8". now it is "installing updates 1 of 11". They are the same updates every time. The installation history shows failure to update every time. How do I either get them to install correctly or shut them off?

Update history to see if the updates are actually installed. If they are, you can right-click on the updates that say they need to be installed, and select Hide.

Same Windows Updates reinstalling on shutdown

Checked update history and there weren't any successful installs. Error Code is 646. I go to Microsoft link for this code and there is nothing. I'll check with others at work but I suspect I'm not the only one with this dilemma. I checked again and ALL the failures have been with Microsoft Office (Word, Excell, etc.) update attempts. I've changed to a weekly update frequency and set it to ask me about installs just to remove the annoying repetetive install.

Any more suggestions? I'm game for anything!

Can you provide us the \Windows\Logs\CBS\cbs.log file and a list of KBs that aren't installing?
