Windows 7: Windows Update constantly loads updates

Windows Update constantly loads updates

Hello

I am having a problem with my computer where the updates never get installed. What happens is this, the computer will list the appropriate update for the machine. If you accept the outstanding updates the machine will run the install and then state that the updates were successful. If you look in the update list, it will display them as all added successfully.
Leaving the machine for a small amount of time the "New Updates are available" reappears with the updates that have just been installed being displayed again. There doesn't appear to be any error messages being displayed.
At present I have 15 windows updates that have the same problem. Can I please get some help with this?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
List the reoccurring updates via type or screen shot

When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.
manually install KB3020369 if it's not already installed

Thank you so much for your assistance, However the fix did not work. All I got back when running the job was "The update is not applicable to your computer.
The version of Windows I am running is Home Professional.
Thanks once again for your help.

Dear Members,

There has to be some answers out there from someone who has either had this problem or just knows how to fix it. This is the last chance before I rebuild my system, which I really don't know want to do.

Were they ever actually installed ? If yes, then you could just hide them if they pop up again.

If they did not actually install, Did you read what each update is for ? Do you actually need those 15 updates ?
