Today I got the exclamation balloon telling me I had updates ready to download/install for my WinXP Home system. I had it do so and everything seemed to go fine as usual and did not even get asked to reboot simply to close window. Then a minute later I got the balloon again and did the same and thought it looked familiar so in another minute after it finished I confirmed that it was requesting to download and install the same 2 updates over and over.
I went to MS/update site and tried it that way for which it told me the same updates needed to be installed and I let it and I did a cold reboot for which I have again received the balloon.
The updates are:
security update for .net framework 2.0 sp2 and 3.5 sp1 on windows server 2003 and windows xp x86 (kb2518864)
security update for microsoft .net framework 2.0 sp2 on windows server 2003 and windows xp x86 (kb2572073)
I looked through the log of updates that have been applied and these show up as installed with the green tick a few times thus far.
I assume I can untick the two updates but I don't know if I would have piece of mind that everything is the way it should be. If it has been properly applied then why does XP not realize it?
Thank you much,
