    So what gives? Why does auto update continue to try to install this update?
    It just started trying to (re)install this update again a couple of days ago.
    I am also getting this for kb972145, which was also successfully installed 2
    months ago.

    The error is occurring because there's corruption in Component Based
    Servicing.
    You have two choices, the first may work, the second one will work:
    1) Download and *save* the System Update Readiness Tool (CheckSUR)

    Description of the System Update Readiness Tool for Windows Vista, for
    Windows Server 2008, for Windows 7, and for Windows Server 2008 R2
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821

    You will need to obtain the Tool that matches the system's architecture
    and edition of Windows, which will either be for Vista/Win7 and x86
    (32bit) or x64(64bit).
    Open Control Panel > System
    Look next to System type for the architecture of the system.

    When the download completes, configure it to clean boot:
    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows
    Vista or in Windows 7
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Now run CheckSUR. Restart afterwards and see if the updates are still
    being reoffered.
    If they're still being reoffered, go to step 2

    2) Do an in-place upgrade (aka Repair Installation) of the OS.

    You receive a "0x80070490" error code when you use Windows Update or
    Microsoft Update Web sites to install updates

    See the " Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 " section.
