Some advice on continuous updates that install and reinstall over and over RRS feed

  • Question

  • This problem keeps recurring on my PC.  I am running Windows 7 Home Prem - the following updates keep installing, then reinstalling every time I shut my PC down.

    KB2487367 / 2656351 / 2468871 / 2533523 / 2600217

    It started quite some time back and the research I did to try rectify really I didn't understand.  I therefore reinstalled my op system and all was fine til a few weeks after and up came these same 5 critical updates.  From the description some seem to be unrelated to Windows 7 (my version is an upgrade from XP)

    I would like to sort this out once and for all as it is driving me nuts.  I can follow clear instruction, but I see a lot of tech advisors assume we humble users know all the terms and the special routines buried in the bowels of the O/s.  If you are gentle with me, I should be able to crack it.

    Really would appreciate an end to this.

    Thanks in anticipation - Keith

  • Just thought I would log in and say that with some unconscious competence, I have solved the problem described above (he says hesitantly).

    I used the "Fixit" service, which I have to say I did last time and it didn't work.

    Keeping singers crossed - at least PC shuts down in a minute now rather than half an hour like it was doing.

  • SPOKE TOO SOON - just noticed new updates available and guess what, they are the same five that have been causing me months of trouble.

    PITA !

    Anyone with any suggestions, please do comment :-(
