I have hidden the 3 updates so they are not installed repeatedly, but I have not uninstalled them yet.

At least Microsoft updated security bulletin MS13-073 acknowledging the fact that these Excel/Office updates are repeatedly offered and reinstalled. see More information " Known issues "

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2760583/en-us

Hopefully they would come up with a fix soon.

I don't have Office 7 installed, and I don't have the Excel Viewer 7 installed and the updates have been installed several times;
I don't even know why it updates what I don't have...

Greetings everyone,

     The main issue I had with those 29 updates, was for Excel 2003.  (I actually had both Office 2003 & 2010 on this machine).  Like many others, I kept getting a WU notice to update that one application.  Finally just uninstalled Office 2003 since I use the 2010 version & rebooted.  The issue eventually resolved.

The MBSA scan and also sfc /scannow I did earlier this morning did not show any problems.  I did post a topic in both the Microsoft Win 7 and Secunia PSI Forums about this issue.  It appears a lot of people are still experiencing problems...judging by the number of topic reply notifications I still continue to receive.

Regards to all,

Pete C.

I unistalled the updates and hid them from WU. Now only the red tray icon from Secunia PSI reminds me about them.
May the FOSS be with you!

Well that's not the case for me on Win8 Pro with update KB2876415
It's still being presented.
 Fortunately, it is list as 'Optional' for my OS so it will remain "hidden"  ::)

I'm not doubting that Information.
I can only state what is happening with my OS and MU. :)

The issue is fixed. If you see the updates back as available when they are already installed, just click on "Check for updates" and let it complete. It will then report that no updates are available and they will no longer show up.

LOL  The issue may be fixed for you, I'm still getting offered the same optional "failed update" KB2876415 published 09/10/13 I stated in my original post. This update hangs indefinitely!
I'm just saying.

If you have an update that is failing and showing that it failed, that is a different issue than what was being discussed. The updates in question here were showing that they had successfully been installed but would show back up as needing to be done. The particular update that is a problem for you was never mentioned in the reports about the Office 2007 updates.

I understand your points.
Failed for me simply meant it hangs and has to be cancelled. I believe Essexboy has the same issue with the same MU I have been talking about. As I also mentioned earlier, it is optional so I have it "hidden". No biggy!
Simply adding another situation to the topic."Any Problems with Windows Update"  8)

The way I installed that updated was to boot the system in clean mode with no external services or drivers.  It then installed with no problem, apart from having to set a clean boot and then reverse it :)

Thanks Martin.
I thought I did read something about 'Clean Boot'. :)
