KB867801 trying to install over and over

    This is a cumulative security update for IE6 SP1. The MS site says this is
    several years old. The auto update for May ran an hour ago, and I even
    have this message in my reportingevents.log file:

    Installation Successful: Windows successfully installed the following
    update: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1
    (KB867801).

    Yet, the icon reappears and the same box appears asking me to choose this
    update to install.

    Why it's installing this I don't know since I've had IE6 SP1 for some time.




    Anyone else have this problem? Is there a MS patch yet?

    I got the same behavior with KB832894 on Tuesday. I consented for it to
    be installed nine (9) times and it kept coming back for more. I finally
    went to Windows Update, chose Custom, and clicked the box to never offer
    that update again.
