Windows Me - Continual Downloading of same updates

  Paul-334492 17:14 20 Nov 2004

Windows Me is dowloading the same security patches (IE Service patch 6 KB833989 and Critical update for KB8700669) over and over again. I thought this was a recent occurrence, but on looking at the system restore points have found its been going on for months. The system updates are done automatically (not recommended, I know) and the problem has just become more noticeable since I moved to broadband.

The patches appear to install ok, but download again if the machine is rebooted.

I'm presuming this is some sort of registry problem, but have no idea how to go about fixing it. I haven't had much luck on the Microsoft Knowledge base.

Does anyone have any ideas?
