The same Windows update keep reinstalling

Hi,

Every time I shut down my laptop, it tries to install the same updates for Windows. If I check, they are shown to already be installed. It is always the same four. Newer updates install just once and are fine. It is driving me crazy. Please help.

Go to control panel-->programs and features--> in the left pane select view installed updates then go to .NET section and see if those updates are really there. Updates for 8/May/2012 are 12 updates and then on 29/MAY are 3. I have faced this problem with KB2656405 three times and then i deleted it, shut down the computer, reboot it and finally did a check for windows updates and all was fine.

Thanks. It did not work for me. This computer is driving me crazy, and it is less than six months old.

Did you try to download these updates and install them in safe mode?
