Which update?

In reply to: Same MS Updates Keep Installing

Some do that under specific conditions. One condition I've run into is when Zonealarm and/or TeaTimer block part of the install. Another time the update was not applicable to their machine.

Thanks for your prompt response. The updates are KB890047 and KB867282.

TeaTimer doesn't block anything if you don't want to. There'll always be a popup window, and it gives you the option of allowing the chance.
