    My problem, seems to be somewhat different then other reported problems.
    The update won't stop installing or notifying me it should be installed -
    even thought installation history tells me every installation has been

    The first time the update was installed there was a reboot and apparently a
    fair amount of housekeeping of some sort. I was notified it was a
    successful installation. Almost immediately thereafter Windows update
    notifed me of another important update. It would be the same .net
    framework 3.5 SP1 etc. I'd click on install, a restore point would be
    created, no reboot or housekeeping and I'd be notified it was a successful
    install. According to the installation history I've now successfully
    installed this update 14 times (but only had the reboot, etc. that first
    time). How can I get Windows update to remember it has already successfully
    installed the update and stop notifying me?

    If it's important, I have the 64 bit version of Vista Home Premium on the

    This is an Cliff Notes update (no pun intended) on my update issue. I
    downloaded the update from the catalog as was suggested here, but did
    nothing with it because I wasn't sure how to do the install. I then
    contacted the Microsoft update support people. They were very
    responsive and, in effect, walked me through the steps in KB923100.
    After that I stopped getting the message that there was an important
    101kb update and was started getting a message that there was am
    important 12.5MB update (in both cases it was net framework 3.5 SP1).
    The update support staffer concluded that it was a Vista System issue
    and referred the matter to the Vista support people, who have been very
    sporadic about contacting me. Their first suggestion was to install framework 1.1 because .net framework had been removed from my
    system and the would provide support for anything that required .net
    framework. I did so and got compatibility warnings (again I have a 64
    bit Vista system so I wasn't completely surprised.) The Vista Support
    support people noted that my update history showed that the update had
    been installed and instructed me on how to stop getting update warnings
    related to .net framework 3.5 SP1 etc. My last note to them (I haven't
    gotten a reply, but they reply only sporadically) was to the effect
    that the procedure in fact prevented my getting the update notices for framework 3.5 etc. However, I had removed .net framework(s) from
    my system in the manner the Update support staff had suggested so I
    wondered if I actually had it on my system. And, given the
    compatibility warnings I had received when installing .net framework
    1.1 I wasn't confident with that installation. Also, in the time that
    had past since starting the conversations with Vista Support and given
    subsequent security and other updates the appropriate restore point no
    longer existed on my computer so I couldn't roll back to a time when framework was "known" to be on the system. I haven't heard
    anything since and really don't know what the status of .net framework
    - whatever the version - may be on my system. But installed programs
    and the windows install cleaner they had me install show only .net
    framework 1.1

  8. It has you talking to yourself - but I read that.

    Maybe you only need .net framework 1.1, if that. The update nags
    are gone. If there's nothing that is broken - some thing you need
    that doesn't work - and you'd prefer not to do a clean install of
    Vista, then cease to be concerned about the thing as a problem,
    other than sporadically corresponding with Vista Support.

    Think about replacing Vista with Windows 7 - just consider when.

    In the longer term I'll be replacing Vista with Windows 7 when it's
    released. The 64 bits and the "glitz" in Vista really appealed to me
    when I got it but, while I like 64-bits, Visa has disillusioned me.
    The problem discussed in this thread (and Media Portal doesn't work any
    more so I suspect a Net Framework problem), the User Account Control
    trips over itself and Vista and Office 2007 don't really seem to truly
    like each other. In the short term, after tax season is over I'll
    probably reinstall Vista. I got to be pretty good doing that when I
    had Windows 98SE.
