Windows repeatedly installling same update

  VNAM75 00:50 27 Nov 2010

I have installed an update about 5 times now over 2 days via auto update. Its called XP security update KB979683. The pc has been rebooted overnight but today its still asking for it to be downloaded and installed. How can I remove the message for the update? I don't even care about the update anymore :-)

Do you get an error message after trying to install update?
You also can right click the update and then hide,this will stop you being nagged about that particular update.

No I don't. I get installation complete, close the tab, then it starts all over again. Very annoying! Right clicking just brings it up again. I'll see if it does it next time I log on.

Lazarus, I tried the sugestions in your link but it didn't work. Instead I chose the custom install option, deselected the update name, and chose to not be reminded of the it again. Seems to have worked. Thanks.
