windows update keeps reinstalling same update again

Windows server 2003  wants to install KB2446704 over and over again.

I eventually looked at the update history to see what if any error message I may have gotten but Windows Update tells me it installs OK every time.

I wonder why on the one hand WU thinks this KB is installed but on the other hand it still thinks it's missing

It is likely a corrupted installer being downloaded and reused.
MS has a troubleshooting article here
Method 3 usually works the best (Safe Mode Manual isntall)

Another option is to go to the Windows update site and see if it shows the update has installed in your history. If it doesn't show installed feel free to hide the update.
you can try download KB2446704 manually from microsoft via a browser and install it.

try to use MBSA, it should fixing the missing or needed file.

hope this helps.
