Windows 7 Keep wanting me to install the same update?


I have a weird problem. Everytime I load up windows 7 it wants me to install an update. It goes installs it and restarts my computer. For a couple mins it says my computer is up to date but then it all of a sudden wants me to install the exact same update again.

I must have installed it like 20 times now.

All the other updates seem to stick expect this one:

Security Update for Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 (KB969856)

Download size: 235 KB

You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.

Update type: Important

A security issue has been identified that could allow elevation of privilege on virtual machines. You can help protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you need to restart your computer.

I would try to install the update manually, target the driver and go to the Windows Compatibility Center or the manufacturer website. Here is more information about troubleshooting update issues: Troubleshoot problems with installing updates.

I did some searching around the web, and it seems the solution is to remove the update, and reinstall it again. This is one of the forums I found the answer posted by this person-Ayrton Bomura
