KB 956744 continues to be offered
I am running Windows Server 2003 SP2 x64. I have downloaded and installed KB
956744 and no errors are recorded for the installation. It shows up in the
Control Panel as installed but Microsoft Update continues to offer it to me.
I have tried the "fix it" tool both in standard and agressive modes but the
update continues to be offered.
I have uninstalled the update, rebooted and reinstalled it but i continues
to be offered.
How do I get this update cleared.

My Windows Media Player 11 is broken. It sounds horrible. The sound is
garbled and no amount of adjustments change this. Previous attempts to get
help fixing this have been unsuccessful. And now, if I burn MP3s with it, to
a CD, the CD will not play in stand-alone players. It gives a No Disc
message, though I can see that the disc has been burned. So...
How about uninstalling it then reinstalling? Repairing it? Rolling back to
an older version?
I found these instructions:

I recently did clean installs of XP and Win7 on 2 different PCs. Each PC
was loaded with Office 2007. When I ran Microsoft Update after the Office
installs, it shows I needed Office 2007 SP1, not SP2. I manually downloaded
and installed Office 2007 SP2 and then checked Windows Updates for any
needed patches. It still showed I needed Office 2007 SP1...even though I
just installed SP2.
Does anyone know how to 1) have Office SP2 show up as a needed update
instead of SP1, and 2) how to configure Windows Update to show that no SP is
needed after SP2 is installed?
Everytime I boot up my PC a small window pops up entitled "UPDATE MANAGER".
It shows two progress bars, but nothing ever happens. Why is this window
popping up every tiem I turn on the computer and how do I get it to stop?
It never used to do this, it just statred lately. Thankyou.
Because you installed something which features an update manager

You could lock the cells that are shown in the chart.
Or you could copy the cells and paste as values (assuming formulas were used
