Updates successful, but still show needed

    I have a Dell 830 laptop with Vita Ultimate that is ~45 days old. I have
    continually seen the last set of updates repeatedly show up as needed when I
    go to shut down. These updates show successfully completed on prior dates in
    my update history, but Vista still wants to install the updates. It has been
    succeddful on the 8-10th time, however this last update (Windows DreamScene)
    is still showing up after being "successfully" installed 16 times since
    2/3/08.

    Any suggestions on getting rid of the annoying continual application of
    updates? They have always worked well with the XP machines I have, but my
    first venture with Vista has been very underwhelming.

    From experience I would stop the Automatic Updates service, then delete the
    contents of C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution, restart the AU service or
    computer and try WU again.
