Identical keyboard drivers?

I'm not clear why Windows Update is listing what seem to be two identical items in my list of possible downloads. Both are: "Microsoft Keyboard Driver Version 2.00.000.300; Released on July 02 2001" and have same size etc.

The existing driver for my USB Keyboard is shown by Device Manager as
Driver Date: 01/07/2001
Driver Version: 5.1.2600.0

I see the intended update is just a day newer, but the version number doesn't bear much relation.

Can anyone offer any insights please?

I've learned not to trust completely, the 'scan for' updates section. When I had a generic keyboard, it insisted on giving me two sets of logitech 1.83 drivers {I did have a logitech deluxe 104 cheapie, drivers not needed} which locked up my machine.
I've since learned to research first, the updates from m$, seems they haven't quite got it together yet ;)

Thanks both. I'll be wary of trusting the MS recommendations too readily.
