    I've been repairing a friends PC and and just coming to the end. Run in to
    a problem with the Windrows update service which I've been unable to
    resolve.

    I'm getting one update; Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 - Security Update for
    Microsoft C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (KB2538242), which is continually
    being repeated even though it has been successfully installed numerous times
    and as confirmed by the Windows Update History log. I've stopped the
    windows update service, flushed the software distribution download folder,
    restarted the update service and rechecked for updates. Still get the above
    wanting to be installed.

    Can anyone tell me what I need to do order to stop this continual update
    request keep appearing ?

    Regards

    Check this registry entry and the file versions to see if it has
    completely installed -

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\Microsoft Visual Studio
    2005 Professional Edition - ENU\KB2538218
    "Installed" = dword:1

    MS11-025: Description of the security update for Visual C++ 2005 SP1
    Redistributable Package: June 14, 2011
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2538242

    Scroll down to File Information; contrast/compare the files listed per
    the system's architecture (x86 or x64).

    If the registry information and file versions are correct, then just
    Hide the update.

    Thanks for your response and apologies for delay in responding: I've been
    away for weekend.

    I looked in the registry at location
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates and cannot find (folder?)
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition - ENU\KB2538218 or
    anything relating to Visual Studio 2005.

    Could this be the reason/problem ?? If so, what do I need to enter to
    correct??

    I've currently hidden the update but would like to correct properly.

    Regards

    MowGreen,

    Should have stated this at this at the outset - It's Windows XP MCE Version
    2002 SP3 as shown in the Control Panel/System info

    Regards
