Windows update KB2633880, KB2572073, KB2518864 Microsoft.Net Framework keep repeating after successful install


My system information:  Windows XP Pro SP3

I recently have had Automatic Updates appear for Security Updates for Microsoft .NET Framework KB2633880, KB2572073, KB2518864

I click install updates and I watch them install successfully.  And then they come right back wanting to install again and again and again.

I have read this proposed solution but I want to know if there are an alternative solution without the need of uninstalling and reinstalling Microsoft .Net Framework.

Thanks for your comment and I will wait for revision.

I had this problem at home and on 5 machines at work I'm responsible for. I updated root certificates (maybe not necessary, but why not) and updated Java. Problem went away. I'm guessing this set of updates relies on the latest Java platform to log the installation.

Seriously doubt it, Microsoft and JAVA(Oracle) are 2 entirely different vendors...I would say it's more likely a reboot has taken place, since that's only thing that I've done and dont see it being re-offered.


From that article

Microsoft has not, at the time of writing, issued an official advisory we can detect. We've asked Microsoft for comment and will update the story again when we learn more. ®

I has waited and today the problem has gone away. It looks like Windows Update has solved some internal flaw. In this case the best solution was to do nothing.
