windows update - same one repeats

I keep having the same update download and install. It is Security Update for Windows XP (KB835732) So far it has installed on 14,16 17 and 18 April - why is it doing this?

Try uninstalling it from Add/Remove Programs, reboot and then reinstall it one last time... that should sort it out.

has installed itself about a dozen times now. Tried un/re-installing but same thing happening.

- Have stopped it doing this - when the autoupdate came on again, just cancel and it wont ask again!

steve0 - what happens when you go to WindowsUpdate.com? Does it try to install again?

Windows updates have a habit of doing this, I get the pop-up every day for about a week or two before it stops. I just cancel it, but I know it can be annoying, sometimes I despair of M/S, I wonder if BG gets these problems all the time????

Try these, each time rebooting then checking if the problem recurs:

1. (Source - click here)

Open Explorer and navigate to Windows/System32 and rename (or delete) the folder Catroot2 to OldCatroot2. This changes the time stamps and makes Windows believe it has not tried to upload the updates before.


Type into CMD.

del /q "%SystemRoot%\System32\Catroot2\Edb.log

2. First d'load/save to your hard disk from - click here. Double-click on the file to install.

Diodorus Siculus - when I go to the Windowsupdate site it is OK - says I have already installed it. So it looks like I'm OK now. Thanks for all the replies for others in the Forum.
