Hello,

I have one of my WSUS servers that has two files that keep coming up that there are files that need to be downloaded, but it never downloads.  Upon further research, it appears that the link is no longer valid as indicated on the error message below.  My question is, what update is this exactly, would I be able to "decline" it so that I no longer get this message?

I would suggest checking to see if you have the auto-approve revisions option enabled, the auto-decline expired revisions enabled, and that you have removed approvals for any superseded updates that are no longer needed or valid

In the list of available updates, right-click any update that you don’t want to see again, and choose Hide Update.
if you want to see a list of the updates you’ve chosen to hide.
Then on the Wndows Update page, click Restore Hidden Updates.

Thank you for your help everyone.  ram_kerala, I have now changed the settings that you have suggested, and have also ran the "Server Cleanup Update Wizard" but those two updates that need files are still showing up.  Is there any other way I can find out exactly which one it is looking for so that I can delete them?

Looks like it is something related to IE7

Thank you everyone, I ended up deleting the old database and reinstalling WSUS.  I made sure that the auto-approve and auto-decline were enabled from the get go this time like ram_kerala mentioned.
