Windows 7: KB2952664 Kept Wanting To Install This Morning - 6 Times "Successful"

08 Jul 2015   #1

Win 7 Ult SP1/Win 10 Pro (all x64)
(SOLVED) KB2952664 Installs 6 Times "Successful"

This update is part of the process of preparation for offering the Windows 10 upgrade. I had previously hidden KB3035583 which is the one that puts the Win 10 Upgrade icon in the Notification area....WU should have known that and not kept on offering the above. Despite saying it was successful 6 times and showing in update history, in Installed Updates, it was there only once, since uninstalled. It was offered yet again even though I've now hidden the offering along with that other update, until such time as I want to accept MS's upgrade offer. So now it appears twice in hidden updates, very strange. WU is no longer saying I have an update waiting.
WU is weird at times and very frustrating.

OK, I gather it's a screwed up effort from MS, yet again.... Windows nagware patches KB 2952664 and KB 2976978 install repeatedly | InfoWorld

They must be hiring temps to save money, because whomever formulates these updates is making a lot of errors.
