Windows 7: Updates KB2633171 and KB2679255 reinstalling over and over again

19 Apr 2012   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Updates KB2633171 and KB2679255 reinstalling over and over again

Hello everyone.

I have two updates that are being installed each time I boot windows 7, KB2633171 and KB2679255. I browsed windows\SystemDistribution\ReportingEvents.log and updates are successful but, weird thing, they are not listed in the installed updates when looking in Control Panel.

I tried following instructions in these SevenForums threads:

- Windows update reset (History and Components)
- Fix a Repeatedly Offered Update (For a Repeatedly Succeeding Update)
- Reset CLFS transaction logs (safe boot and WinRE)

I also tried stopping Windows Update service, renaming SystemDistribution directory and resetting the machine so services starts again and recreates the directory and files but nothing changes. Windows boots and, after a while,Windows Update icon shows up in the traybar. I have downloaded the two updates from the Microsoft site and installed them manually.... guess what happened....

this is my windowsupdate.log

I have no other ideas. Can you help me ? Thanks !
