    Duplicate Updates for Office 2013

    after several tries and re-tries to install some Office 2013 updates, it was giving me errors or download problems, now my win10 seems to be happy with its updates.

    My problem NOW is that i have multiple and duplicate (x3 or x5) entries in the installed entries in the Installed Updates List: see screenshots

    In the registry I found those duplicates in these keys location, an example for all:
    Security Update for Microsoft Excel 2013 (KB3085502) 64-Bit Edition DUPLICATES 5 times.

    And more in Uninstall entries

    As you can see what changes is the Product ID while the PatchID is the same.

    Should I clean duplicates entries?
    Will it affect my system performance?
    I'm afraid it will defrag and bloat the registry.

    Thanks for your help

    I would like to have other people opinion, because I'm feeling that is a normal behaviour; I mean that updates patches applies to different office products: word, excel, onenote, etc...
    so for some reason it register the update entry 2 or 3 or 4 times.

    Anybody can confirm this?
