SAME UPDATE AGAIN AND AGAIN

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by =?Utf-8?B?Uk9PU1RJRQ==?=, Mar 21, 2006.

  1. With Auto Update on ( XP Home) I keep getting the same update downloading
    again and again. If I install it the system tray shield icon goes away, then
    10 seconds later its back asking me to update again. The same update though.

    Initializing installation... done!
    Installing Security Update for Windows XP (KB890859) (update 1 of 1)...

    Any way of stopping this but keeping the auto update option?

    Hi ROOSTIE , I think you'd better post your request to the specific
    newsgroup that Microsoft has established for Windows Update.
