    I keep getting offered "Security Update for Windows Vista (KB981852)" even
    though I've already installed it. In fact, when I go to update history, it
    shows that the update was successfully installed 10 times since 8/12/2010.
    (That's every time I've turned the computer on since then!) Anybody know
    how to get Windows Update to stop offering this update. I've tried the
    "unchecking" the box but that doesn't seem to work. TIA!

    I would do a system restore to the 7/12/2010 and then it will probably
    install OK. If not let us know and we will go from there.

    Have you tried telling Windows Update to "Ignore" this update? I'm
    guessing, however, that it won't work, and you'll have to do what
    housetrained suggested.

    Thanks for the replies, Gene & housetrained! I haven't been successful at
    trying to hide the update so I guess that I'll try the system restore. But,
    is there a reason to go back to July rather than August? Thanks, again!

    no reason - my mistake - 10 august should be fine.
    if you don't need an unimportant update right click and the option to not
    get it again appears. But only do this for optional ones NOT important ones.
