    Windows 8 installing same update

    So I've had this problem for awhile where it will say I need the following important update installed: "Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2756872)" and so I click to install it, it loads the bar about a fourth of the way and then goes to "The updates were installed" and I go to check for more updates and it shows the same exact update. So I rebooted my computer a number of times and it still wants to install that same update.

    If I view my update history it shows that same update being installed and that it "succeeded" but I don't see it in my list of installed updates.

    Any advice or help would be much appreciated.

    If it's not showing up under installed updates, install it manually from here and then re-run Windows Update to see if that fixes the problem.
