Update KB2656351 wants to update over and over again

Win 7 x64 update KB2656351 seems to download and install smoothly, but within a few minutes it wants to update again and again. It doesn't matter how many times I update. It doesn't ask for rebooting, but if I do it doesn't make a difference either.

Hmm your not the only one with this issue look dotnet-framework-security-update-killing-outlook-2010-a.html The out look stuff is irrelevant but the issues are the same as yours.

I would suggest installing SP1 if you have not, uninstalling .NET then re nstalling it along with all updates.

No help here just a comment. I am seeing more threads on this update. I a begining to think this update is "funky". At the same time I installed it I developed a bug but have since got it to install with out any apparent probs.

Hello, and welcome to the Seven Forums!


Two causes for a repeatedly offered successful update. Either the update is bad, and Microsoft will re-release it within a week or so (it was a very rushed update, I can tell you that now), and you should notice the file size change and the update will suddenly install, or you have an inconsistent transactional log file. The latter is easily fixed.
  • Open an Elevated Command Prompt: Elevated Command Prompt
  • Type fsutil resource setautoreset true %systemdrive%\ and press enter.
Restart your computer, install the update again, and tell me whether it is re-offered again.

You can see more details at my temporary tutorial here: Windows Update - Fix a Repeatedly Offered Update

I shall reply back to you if and when this update is re-released.

Niemiro, I tried your advise, and updated after that, but nothing changed.
I'll wait for a week to see if Microflop re-releases the update.

Thanks for your help. There was a difference between the versions. However, it was Microsoft .NET Framework 4 client profile 4.0.30320 and Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Extended 4.0.30319.
Uninstalling and reïnstalling extended didn't help; the versions are still the same and it doesn't solve the problem.

I'll ask the Microsoft people.

As someone else on the forum is having the same problem I would like to ask if you have solved the problem and if you have how?
