Windows Update Server offering same Forefront definition updates to clients. (WSUS)

Hi,

I have an issue with our WSUS that keeps offering the same two Definition Update for Microsoft Forefront Client Security - Clients then keep repeatedly installing them.

This only occurs for Forefront updates – All other updates are working fine.

I have tried declining them, but then it's just another ones that keeps looping.

Currently it's:

Definition Update for Microsoft Forefront Client Security - KB977939 (Definition 1.153.504.0)

&

Definition Update for Microsoft Forefront Client Security - KB977939 (Definition 1.95.2179.0)

I then read some about the update Client Update for Microsoft Forefront Client Security (1.0.1703.0) which I then manually approved, but it loops as well.

When I check Microsoft Update on a client computer I get offered Definition Update for Microsoft Forefront Client Security - KB977939 (Definition 1.153.544.0 - Which I guess is the newest?

Attached image is how it looks on the clients View Update history

The server is a Windows Server 2008 R2 std. with WSUS 3.0 and clients mainly Windows 7.

I tried that before, but I did it again - Approved Client Update for Microsoft Forefront Client Security (1.0.1703.0

Now I got that as well on repeat...  Keeps getting re-offered after successful install. (see second attachment )
