    Repeated .NET updates via Windows Update

    For months (until I turned it off), Windows Updates has been offering the same 5 updates (see attached .jpg list). Now and then I turn Updates back on or run an "analysis" from the Microsoft Download site, and get the same 5 files.

    Other updates seem to load successfully; that is, they don't get repeated.

    My computer appears to be working correctly except for this most irritating problem.

    What can be going on and how do I get this problem fixed?

    Do you get any error messages?

    Have you checked the log file in C:\windows\windowsupdate.log?

    Joe, I found the windowsupdate.log file, but don't know what I'm supposed to look for, so I can see that this problem is beyond my computer skills. Perhaps my "computer guy" can figure out what is going on.

    Do you get an error message when you try to install the fixes?

    No. No error message. The updates appear to install (5-10 minutes), the installer closes, and moments later, the "you have updates" shield comes back on with the same 5 items. It's maddening -- that's why most of the time I turn off the automatic update feature.

    If you check your installed updates list do the updates show as installed?

    See some of the linkst at updates offered repeatedly - Bing.
