Microsoft Fix-it Center and Windows Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

       I don't know if it's worthwhile or not (I could hide the update!)...

      Microsoft Update is reoffering KB2813170 after a successful update

    (it shows up in Add/Remove Programs). This is not the first reoffer

    in the past few months. I think it is the third! Both previous reoffers

    were corrected by using Microsoft Fix-it Center (I don't remember the

    KB update #). This time Microsoft Fix-it has had no effect. However, I have

    found an interesting behavior.

       If I run Fix-it, it claims:

                    "Windows Update Components must be repaired"

                    "One or more Windows Update Components are configured incorrectly"

      Fix-it then fixes these problems and reports its success.

      Fix-it also claims:

                     "The location where Windows Update stores data locations has changed

                      and must be repaired"

      I assume this is all OK.

      If I immediately rerun Fix-it, it again finds the same errors and displays the same output.

      Should Fix-it not find the same errors the second time around!!!

      If its worth it, I will try whatever solutions you may have. I'm growing tired of the reoffers!

  • Wow! This is the exact same problem I have but I have a Vista. My computer is saying it has installed updates but then when I look at the "view update history" and the last date updates were installed it doesn't match up so I have been trying to use the fixit for that because unsure if it is really installing them or not. The fixIt tool keeps saying the same thing on mine but won't fix the location for updates and don't know what else to do. Anyone else reading this and has any answers I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
