Microsoft Auto Updates how do you dump a update that's stuck? It's like Ground Hog Day the movie... Same update over and over and over again.
Is their a way to dumping or getting rid of this annoying problem..?

You can try manually downloading and installing it if the install is failing via Windows update. You can also uncheck the update and WU will ask if you want to prevent it from showing up again. Without knowing which KB it is I can't offer any more advise.

What the hell are you talking about?? If you have a question rather than an answer for the OP, you should start your own thread, thread hijacking is frowned upon.

How are you doing the updates, via the windows update website or the auto update (clicking yellow sheild in the tray) If using auto update, click the shield to bring up the install wizard, select the second option (manual or custom I think?) uncheck the offending update and continue, the wizard will ask if you want to be informed of the unchecked update again.

You can also turn off auto updates and just manually do it once a week or so. It wastes system resources doing nothing really, but for the casual user you should leave it on. So much crap is turned on when you even do a fresh install, you really speed things up by turning unnecessary operations off.

Does not matter if I do manual or once a week.... nothing to check. Update click either express or custom. Then restart....... yellow shield gone...... 2 seconds later yellow shield back for either express or custom same update. Turned the damn thing off..... came back to weeks later turned auto update back on. Yellow Shield same update..... no way to get rid of. Unless I just stop getting updates.

Same update for the last 1-2 months just won't go away or install.....

Sorry pal hijacking your thread was not my intention. Im really new at this so the protocall was something I didnt know, however your friends helped me with it. Great Guys, and I learned something in the process. If I really want to Hijack something again (ROLMFAO)I will go where your other friends are. Think they are a little more professional and a hell of a lot kinder.

Your post was jibberish and not related to this thread, which is not mine by the way. And with almost 200 posts your not new at this at all. I still haven't figured out what you were trying to say.
