Re: Automatic Updates repeatedly installing KB948109
Well I have tried installing using my normal user account (which is a power
user) and using the stock Administrator account which I never bothered using
before. Main reason I tried that account at all is because of a bugged GFX
driver update having complaints over admin rights falsely.
That's interesting to note and I'll remember it in future issues too as an
option worth trying. Afterall, since I don't use the stock Administrator
account it is clean enough.
I've checked all the KB articles suggested so far, they haven't solved the
problem. Only thing so far to make a difference was to just hide
notifications of that particular update.
