    As part of this week's batch of updates, I got Security Update for Windows
    XP (KB2676562) and it SEEMED to install properly, in that it asked me to
    restart my computer (running XP) after apparently normally downloading and
    installing, which I did.

    It shows up in my Add/Remove programs List as I would expect if it had
    installed properly

    However, it keeps showing up when I check for Updates as being there and
    High Priority.

    I'm thinking I should just mark it as "Ignore." Does that sound sensible?

    The security issue addressed by KB2676562 *requires* that KB2686509 also
    be installed. Please see, * specifically *, the " Why is this update
    re-offered multiple times? " section -
