Windows 7: Windows Update Still Wants to Install Successful Updates

Can't be done - WU is part of the OS, and attempts to mess with it will almost always lead to tears.

If it's confused enough to start even looking at 64bit manifests, then I reckon there's something seriously wrong.

One other thing I've noticed is that the "Installed Updates" only shows updates installed up to the 15th February but the "Update History" screen shows updates installed on the 15th March. Is there a way of fixing this or is it the repair install method?

That's normal - it means that the updates that apparently installed since 15th Feb didn't completely install, but rolled back.
The repair install should fix things.

I've done the repair install and it seems to have gone ok. I rebooted the pc with no problems last night and then shut it down and went to bed. This morning when I started it up to finish off cleaning up the files, doing the updates and registering Windows the PC crashed however system repair automatically seemed to have fixed it.

I will carry on with the updates (about 150 of them) and will post when that has finished with the outcome.

I'm pretty much back to where I was Friday evening. The PC boots up ok, but I still have some failed updates. KB2598845 is for IE8 and I think it is there because IE8 came with the repair install and I ran the updates before I loaded IE11. The next three KB264415, KB2727528 & KB2868116 all failed with the error code 8024200D. KB2703157 failed with 80242016, KB2621440 failed with 800F0816 and KB2864202 failed with 80010108. Apart from the three which failed with the same code (WU still shows them as updates to load), what can I do about the final four updates listed?

All the updates have loaded without any problems now. So I will mark this one as solved.

Thanks for your help Noel.
