automatic update problem

I have win xp home, automatic updates set for auto at 3:00 am. The download
and install happens. (Proved by looking on web update history and in windows
directory) however the yellow icon w/ the exclamation point shows up in the
tray to manually install the same updates. Also most of the last several
updates show up several times as completed in both the event viewer and the
update history on Microsoft update.

This is very annoying. Does anyone know how to fix?

I'll keep it very simple. Step 1 to get help is to post your issue in a
group for that issue. This is the C++ programming group.

You'll have better luck asking a Windows question in an Windows group,
rather then in this .NET programming group:

To find the group you need:

http://www.microsoft.com/communities...D-2224A4FEB3EA

Then open your language in the TreeView on the left, scroll down to
"Windows", open and scroll down to "Windows XP", and
select a group from that category.

I apologize for wasting your time. The "keep it simple stupid" remark is a
signature. Not meant to offend. I will go ahead and post in the proper
group. Thanks for letting me know.

No apologies needed :)
I'm not trying to shoo you away. I'm just trying to get you to the group
that will be interested in, and have suggested fixes for your problem.
