Windows 7: Second time Windows Update finds old update

Second time Windows Update finds old update

For the second time in two months while checking for windows updates after installing newer updates it detects a older update from the past 2013-2016 which was never installed on my system. Any clue as to why this is happening? I did a clean install back in December of 2016. The update that popped up to install last night was KB3185319 which was released back in September of last year; this update was suggested after installing KB4012218 March 2017 preview of monthly quality rollup.

Hi snoopy567, welcome to the Forum.

I think these updates re-appear after they have been updated by MS & instead of issuing a new KB number they just re-issue them for reinstalling.

Interesting theory. It just concerns me due to the fact that this was a security update, and It makes me feel like I should do another clean restore.
