Windows Updates

When I go to Windows Update it tells me that theres 4 critical updates so I download them and they all fail :eek:
I've looked in "Installation history" and I've already got them all.

Is there a way to remove them from "Windows Update" list ??

And YES I've used SEARCH and looked through all 217 threads it gave me but can't find this problem anywhere :rolleyes:
There is a section on the left-hand side of the screen on Windows Update called something like "Personalize Windows Update". Simply uncheck these updates and it won't show them anymore.

All fully installed but I just want them removed from the Update list so I don't keep trying to download the stupid things :(


I may actually be insane.
Are the patches in add/remove programs? if so can you un-install them then install the ones that Windows update is trying to throw at you?

(I don't ever use winUpdate so I don't know how it works etc, only used it a few times)

Good grief Charlie Brown
This will give you something to fiddle with. Don't know if it will do anything.

To Restore a Previously Declined Windows Update

Open System in Control Panel.
On the Automatic Updates tab, click Restore Declined Updates.
If any of the updates you previously declined still apply to your computer, they will appear the next time Windows notifies you of available updates.
