    Updates need to be reinstalled

    I have recently noticed some strange behavior by Windows Update and IE6 and wondered if anyone might recognize the cause.

    I have installed the following update at least twice as listed on the Windows Update page:
    "814078: Security Update (Microsoft Jscript version 5.1, Windows 98 and Windows NT 4.0)
    Download size: 318 KB, < 1 minute
    A security issue has been identified that could allow an attacker to run programs on a computer running Microsoft

    Re: Updates need to be reinstalled

    It's probably a bug in the Windows Update site, not recognizing the fact that the update has been installed. I've been getting the same behaviour too, and remember it happening for a while some time ago with another update. Eventually MS posted a fix. Hopefully they will this time too.

    Re: Updates need to be reinstalled

    Exactly. This is a well known problem that we have been looking at for days... I tried to gather information about it in this thead, but so far I do not have many people in this forum willing to help out... <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15> Oh well. Maybe I need to put HELP! in the title or offer free donuts or something. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    What is your version of WSH?

    It looks like part of the problem has been fixed at Windows Update -- try it again.

    Yep, no longer being prompted to install the previously-installed update.
