    Is there a fix for windows update reinstalling the same thing


    Is there a fix for windows update reinstalling the same thing over and over again
    Visual C ++ 2012 update is the only one that keeps reinstalling and all the installs are successfully installed

    Anyone have any ideas

    Go to Programs and Features, left click EACH C++2012 entry, click Repair and restart computer after last repair. Check by Checking for updates and see if it tries again to install.

    What I found here was a pair of C++ installs but only the first saw the details. The check is looking at the Update for Microsoft C++ 2012 Update 4 Redistributable Package (KB3119142) trying to go on as the second item on the 14279 Insider Preview build here. Apparently that has a problem going on when your 3rd party av program or firewall is active and continues try to get on each time you check.

    Ever since the 10586 Insider was replaced by the TH2 General Release version I have been noticing the Windows Defender update also trying hard right before the next Insider build comes into view! There is no left click to fix option only the right click to uninstall option seen for any updates.
