Any Problems with Windows Update?
« on: September 11, 2013, 12:23:54 AM »
I've never had a problem before but now WU wants to keep installing the same 3 Office 2007 updates over and over. They are in my installed updates list 3 times now.

Have never had a problem with WU either.
I had 1 also, Just hung and wouldn't finish installing. ???
It was the only optional install so I have set to ignore.

I have ancient MS Office version so no updates for that and no subsequent problems.

For me it is the WU .NET Framework update nightmare, as that without doubt has caused me lots of grief in the past. I haven't yet been offered Windows Updates yet, probably later today.

 It appears to be mostly the three that True Indian posted. Those are the same three giving me the issue. They're all for Office 2007 and older versions are not affected. If you don't have any Office things installed, you should be fine.

Yeap! Those 3 KB; 2760411, 2760588, 2760583 are the ones >:(

No answer yet from Microsoft.

Just FYI
The update issue on my Win8 Pro I mentioned in my previous post (Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2876415) is not "Office" related.
 I don't have MS Office installed.

I'm trying to report it to MicrosoftHelps on twitter. I find this very odd that it is happening.

It seems that any Tweets or questions about this issue on Facebook at the official MS sites are being quickly deleted. They have acknowledged the problem however, and say they are working on it. There is a recommendation to uninstall the problem updates and then hide them in WU until a fix is forthcoming. It's not clear whether this comes directly from MS or not however. I personally have done it.

2760588  also seven times and it's continuing to ask me for the same to repeat down-loading...
