    Just the man I was looking for.
    Yes, it is back
    I return to install Updates and it is there again it seems to re=install on reboot.
    I just tried cmd in safe mode but it has returned.

    Thanks for your help to.

    I find it impossible for an update to install itself.

    You are setup like this, correct ?

    Yes, Adram mine is set the same. (always has been)
    I tell you with a smile on my face that I un-install it and the system goes through all the right actions to un-install.
    The KB then disappears off the "Installed list" I re-boot and the system shows shutting down please wait 33% etc them closes then re-starts still counting 100% then desktop.
    Go to Installed Updates and there it is again.

    Is there any other way to un-install updates that you know of ?

    Firstly I would uncheck let all users install updates,
    Also uncheck give me recommended updates the same as important ones,
    Then all Recommended updates will be listed in the Optional section instead of the important section.

    Thank you Mr Zone for that info, I will change my settings to your suggestion.
    Mr problem seems to have gone.
    I used safe mode into control panel, installed updates and noticed the dates never progressed past the 14th of May.
    When the KB returned it showed todays date.
    I returned to windows, installed updates did a scan for it and its gone and there is no dates above the 14th of May.

    I also checked and that KB is in my Hide list.

    I have been in to PC's for many years and they still amaze me.

    Thanks guy's I'll let you know any change

    It does not matter how you set those checkmarks, if you are the only user and you have it set to check but never install, windows will never install an update, you have to do it.

    That`s how I`ve had mine set since day 1 of Windows 7 :)

    Your PC should never EVER do anything unless you tell it to

    Those little check marks or at least one of them keeps Recommended updates Out of the Important updates section and that's the way I like it,

    It keeps people from saying a recommended update is Important when it's not it's Optional

    Last I checked there is still a windows default admin account unless turned off it has more rights than you

    But that account doesn`t install updates, or do anything unless you enable it, so......

    Once again, your PC should never do anything unless you tell it to.
