    Windows Update Cleanup still causes KB's to be re-offered

    So I'm caught up on Windows Updates (after reading Susan Bradley's Patch Watch column) and I tested running Disk Cleanup with Windows Update Cleanup checked.

    It caused KB3021952 to be re-offered.

    Still haven't seen anything from Microsoft on a solution.

    What OS?

    The KB article is on revision 6 so there has been some activity on it. Perhaps the detection mechanism has been changed.

    Windows 7.

    It's the same issue that has been documented in several Lounge threads recently, just a different KB...

    Well, don't run disk cleanup with Windows Update Cleanup selected until there is a fix.

    LOL...that was my recommendation in the earlier Lounge threads, since I discovered the connection with WUC by testing, and verfiied it then.

    I was confirming it is still an issue on my system, and could be on others.

    Thanks.

    After installing the 5/12 updates recommended in Susan Bradley's column, I re-tested running Disk Cleanup with Windows Update Cleanup checked.

    No updates were re-offered this time.

    Hopefully this is fixed for everyone else.
