Circular Windows update (update trying to install over and over)

[ Edited ]

I got 3 updates that are giving problems:

 

  • KB2760411
  • KB2760588
  • KB2760583

They are trying to be install over and over again.

 

I've installed the updates but when I click "check for updates," there they appear again.

I have the same issue. These Office 2007 updates are still appearing in Microsoft Update even though they have already been successfully installed.

This is reported on Microsoft Answers too: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_update/updates-trying-to-install-...

Let's just hope Microsoft fixes this.

Same thing here.

 

I've just right clicked them and chose Hide update for now until a fix is released.

I got these Office 2007 updates offered today even though my Office is 2002 .... I've skipped them and will probably hide them when I get annoyed.

IMF I think I downloaded these but I don't have office 2007 I have 2003. Will that cause a problem for my system? Should I uninstall them?
