Windows 7: Win update keeps prompting the same update...

Win update keeps prompting the same update...

This is not such a big deal, but it's getting to be a real annoyance.

Windows 7 keeps prompting me to install the security update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 (KB970892)

According to my update history, it has been installed successfully 5 times now. Yet every time I start the computer I am notified of an important update and it's always the same one.

What's the deal here? Is there something I can do to stop this. I still want to be notified of future updates.

I'm running W7 64-bit on a new Dell Studio 1555.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Sorry, but I guess I'm just used to using the auto updates.

Do I go to Microsoft for this?

If I try to visit http://www.update.microsoft.com it just brings up my windows update window from my control panel. I'm at a loss. What am I missing?

MS supports their Updates and Service packs via email. You will get the help but not in real time.

Thanks. I still haven't figured it out but I do appreciate the help. I just realized that In W7 you can right click for and option to hide updates which seems to stop the prompting.

We'll see...

Yeah but I didn't recommend that because it has this way of elbowing you and saying "Hey buddy, you hid a bunch of us - sure you don't wanna reconsider?"

Annoying
