Windows 7 Proffessional x64
Closer to the Truth

This issue was probably not caused by Microsoft. Programmers who utilise dot-net framework are pointing users to bad code levels. My experience with this problem has shown that two updates, KB2461678 and KB2656369 (not the V2 version) have been loaded and one of these is the problem. Your issue may vary depending on the program that caused the installation of dot-net framework to be installed.

I have also discovered that it is best *not* to use any of the cleanup tools. They don't fix the problem and *may* delete useful files or cause other issues. Because this is most likely 3rd party caused, I doubt that anyone with a version of dot-net framework built into the OS will experience any problem. *Do* use the removal tool. *Do* use the installation link. These fix this issue.

Win 7 Prof SP1 64 bit

In my experience, this is related to .Net Framework 4 full client installation and extended client. Whatever KBxx update is installed as windows update under extended client repeats itself at update checks. It is not dependeent on x86 or x64 or Win 7 and Vista. Nothing to do with Kies or other apps as well. I have spent 12 hours installing and trying that on 3 PCs: Vista 32 bit, Win 7 32 bit, Win 7 64 bit.
What I did is: right click on the update and select "hide": peace and quiet
