    I am having a problem with windows update. After I download and install an update it wants to keep downloading and installing over and over until I tell it not to remind me about it again. Any ideas?

    try using SYSTEM RESTORE tool to restore your computer to an earlier time.

    to the time before this problem occured...if possible of course.

    try scaning your PC for viruses and spyware.

    i recomend NOD32 the best antimalware tool you can find.

    just google it.

    if you intend to use it...uninstall any previously installed ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE to avoid conflicts.
