    I did all of the monthly "high priority" installs today and when I got back
    on my PC a bit ago, I got another notice of updates needing to be installed.
    I selected Windows Update and the above two said they needed to be installed.
    They are in my "history" file as "succeeded" and also in my control panel as
    "installed".
    What's up with this ??

  2. There is a final stage of update during the boot which is not documented
    in any log which is just assumed to occur. I suspect that it can be blocked
    by users' third-party security packages unless they are uninstalled or at least
    disabled (e.g. not just stopped while the executable of the update is run during
    the install phase of the update.)


    FYI

    I don't have my MicroSoft Update feature set to "Auto", so for a couple of
    days, everytime I would boot up, I would get the notification that there were
    updates ready for me. They were always the same two. Then the notification
    morphed to just show "one" update that was ready and finally after about 4 or
    5 days, the notifications just stopped. I did nothing, so who knows what
    went on for the "phony" notifications to stop; but they did ??
    I use to have the same problem with the "Genuine MicroSoft Update". I had
    the exact update number installed on my PC and, would every now and then, get
    a notification that I needed to install it "again". I just ignored it and
    eventually, it stopped. Just more MS, BS !!
    I wouldn't set my update selection to "auto" for all the tea in China.

  4. These are new symptoms? E.g. no longer discussing about updates
    which are listed as installed? Then check the WindowsUpdate.log
    One possible (and likely) explanation would be that the update site
    was busy and deferred the download to a later date. Etc.
