    MS 3xUPDATES LOOP - HAVE MICROSOFT MESSED UP?

    Anyone else having issues with the three security .Net framework Updates from MS? They install & loop - has MS messed up?

    KB2518864
    KB2572073
    KB2633880

    You install and they appear for install again.

    On Windows XP boxes and Server 2003 Machines.

    All these apply to XP/2003 only it appears. KB2518864 and KB2572073 released in 2011 and KB2633880 2012.

    Silly question, but how come you're only installing these now?

    That's what I want to know as the machines in question are fully patched. On checking for updates yesterday there were none. I think somebody at Redmond has dropped the ball.

    It's appearing on the Technet forums now:

    Problems with window updates of KB2518864, KB2633880 and KB2572073

    It's a bit of a coincidence that we've all hit this at the same time if they're old fixes?

    Somebody at Redmond clicked the box to send out these three updates again instead of the Like button on Zuckerberg's profile page where he's announced his marriage...

    Oi, techy guy at Microsoft, yes you with the doughnuts! Concentrate on what you're doing! Stop looking at pictures of R2D2 naked and sort this updates cock-up out!

    Thank you.

    It very much looks like something has gone wrong, but hopefully Microsoft will supersede or remove these updates from deployment.

    It's also been reported of problems with Excel 2010 with large spreadsheets this month too. Not a good month for Microsoft.

    Maybe it's their master plan to get you guys off XP Windows 7 is unaffected it seems.
