Update looks successful, but Windows update still thinks I've not installed it.

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Dmitry Vasilyev, Feb 29, 2004.

  1. Each time I turn on my PC, windows update asks me to
    install new update (the recent critical patch for Windows
    media player). Installation looks successful, but next
    time this happens again and again.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks very much!

    Turn off Your antivirus program and any pop up blocker
    programs, then go to the windows update site, scan for
    updates, install them. Then restart your computer. Make
    sure to turn your antivirus program on if it hasn't
    already after you restarted the computer. The update will
    be completely installed now and you shouldn't get the
    same update over and over again. Usally the antivirus
    program prevents a full installation of the update and
    this is why you keep getting it. By turning the antivirus
    program off, it allows for the full installation. Hope
    this helps you. Let me know if this doesn't work...
