Windows 7: Windows repeatedly offers updates KB2600217 and KB2656351

28 Feb 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Windows repeatedly offers updates KB2600217 and KB2656351

I have followed the steps in Windows Update Posting Instructions but still have the problem.

Windows Update installs updates KB2600217 and KB2656351 without any error messages but every time the install is finished, it offers the same updates again.

I have downloaded the updates from microsoft website and tried to install in safe mode.
When I try to install in safe mode I get an error and the installation log looks like this:

OS Version = 6.1.7601, Platform 2, Service Pack 1
OS Description = Windows 7 - x64 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
