    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
    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

    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

    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.
