    Windows Update

    Windows had an update for "Games for Windows 3.5" I installed it. A quick check revealed it had installed successfully, however I got another notification that an important update was available, without thinking I installed it and went to check it was successful only to find it was BUT it was exactly the same update that I had already installed.

    I now have another notification that an important update is available and this time I checked it ... it is the same update again. I have no idea why I am getting the same update over and over even though it has been "successfully" installed.

    Any ideas greatly appreciated.

    8 Release Preview, 7 Home Premium


    In which version of Windows 8 you are using?

    If you still have Win8 CP in your unit better to replace and install Win 8 Release Preview, were some issues are fixed in RP.

    If you plan to install Win 8, let us know about the update.
