Windows 7: Windows 7 updates same for updates every time it checks for updates

Windows 7 updates same for updates every time it checks for updates

For the past day windows wants to install the same 4 updates over and over, I have windows update set to download and let me choose when to install.

I can't understand why I even need them, as I uninstalled net framework.


Notice how the update at 8:17 AM., KB2656368, is the same as one of the 4 updates installed at 7:47 PM.
Windows wants to install the same four kb files again.
How do I stop this?

See if you can System Restore to before Net Framework 4 was installed and then Hide it when it is again offered in Updates.

But be aware that some programs will need it and may not prompt you of this leaving you to guess why they are not installing or performing correctly. For this reason I always install it.

So you might want to reinstall it using its standalone installer since it may not have uninstalled correctly anyway.

Found how to stop the particular updates. View the list of updates and highlight each one of them, right click and choose hide. Now microsoft will no longer show the kb files you have hidden.

Just as was suggested in post #2.

I seem to only get this problem when I'm on VERY slow download speed, (as was 2 days ago, it dl and installed the same updates 5 times, till I hid those updates).

Thanks so much for this helpful thread! I installed Dragon Naturally Speaking 12 yesterday and it required and installed .Net 4, since when I've been having this issue. Great to have found a simple fix.
