Windows 7: Install succeeds yet OS wants to again update?

Install succeeds yet OS wants to again update?

Regarding this week's latest batch of updates. The majority of the updates including SP3 and all updates requiring a boot installed just fine.

After boot, being prompted to install the last three (attached screen shot), I proceeded. The update for the 3 reported succeeded. After I closed the bubble to look at the installed updates, the icon reappeared to install updates (the same last 3). I did this 3 times all with the same result.

Then I uninstalled the 3 problematic updates that had installed okay. During the uninstall, the OS advised to close 3 apps (I was not prompted to close these 3 during the install). I did so and rebooted.

After boot, 2 of the 3 apps were running and I stopped their processes. I again installed the 3 updates, again they reported OK upon install and again the stupid icon appears wanting to install these same updates.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (Service Pack 1)

A lot of people are having that problem. There are a few topics about it on this forum. I think all we can do is wait.
