Windows 7: Updates being installed again and again

Updates being installed again and again

I have two updates which are being installed every day, and more than once a day. They are: KB977165 and KB981852.

My update history says they have been installed 3 times successfully, but still they come back for more.

Can anyone give me any clues as to what is going on? Never seen this behaviour before.

Go into Control Panel\System and Security\Windows Update\Select updates to install, right click on the buggers and "hide" them. That should do it.

Go to Programs and Features>>View installed updates

if you have these two ones listed then uninstall them and reinstall updates,if you don't have them then install these updates,restart computer and when BIOS screen disappear press F8 to boot into safe mode to finish installation.

If it doesn't work, try reset system transaction logs CLFS transaction logs - Reset

Many thanks to you all for coming back so quickly.

I have reset MS Update and run Update again - needless to say those same two updates have shown. I have installed them for the moment and will see how it goes tomorrow.

MS Update itself seems to be taking much longer than it did before all this started - I don't know if that is significant or not.

Will post tomorrow.

Smells like there is a problem with your updater. Maybe the sfc /scannow command can fix it.

I reset the transaction logs, and that seems to have fixed the problem. Another security update came down, and installed without any problems.

Many thanks for the advice.
