Windows update keeps installing the same update

    With Windows Update I install one specific update and the
    installation succeeds. No problem.
    But the next time I go to Windows Update the same update
    is there again, and again and again.

    So, how do I get rid of the mentioning of the
    availability of that updatefile by Windows Update. It is
    installed but keeps coming back to tell me that I should
    install it.

    Has anybody an idea how to solve this problem?
    Frank.

    Prevent Windows Update from prompting you to install a Hotfix
    you know is already installed:

  3. check check the file Windows Update.log and see if the
    update was actually installed. I've had problems like
    this before when Windows Update said update was installed
    and the LOG file said differntly, also a good place to
    look is in the Add/Remove Programs area of Control Panel.
    if the update is not listed there then it failed to
    install. I'm having problems with one update now Q810565
    as you will notice the post I posted earlier today.
