I'm sorry. I attach a part of the updates in Control panel, as well as the Updates history line referred to this update. There are more double and triple time updates that are not shown in the attachment. Yes , they are Office updates.

I think this one was a little different. Although the update was installed, there was a failed attempt remark in the Updates history.

Some news about this issue with updates:

Two days ago I uninstalled and reinstalled all the updates done on 15th August. It was not necessary at all, but doing this made me see that the KB4343909 was indeed already installed in the computer, as I mentioned above. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it again, and after the restart, I have the message for successfully installed cumulative update, in the updates history. So, everything is up to date now.

My question:
Why in the Control panel (Installed updates) several updates are shown several times (attachment)? E.g. KB3039720?

You started it! Don’t blame us!
Take this one. Every time you click the pink button, you get another...surprise. Enjoy.  :)

I don't blame you, Ria.

Let's make some pop corn (volume on) or watch the falling guy (scroll up or down the poor guy).   8)

P.S. It's much better to kill your time instead of having your time killing you (Panos).

Thanks, Corrine and Satrow. I knew/suspected that something was not said right in HTG site. I'm very satisfied with PM, and every computer I brought here for cleaning has now PM installed. Even at school I worked the previous years, my colleagues learned about it and use it.  And it's good to hear all these from someone he is involved with this project.

Dr M, have you updated to v 28 and does it load?
It might be Nvidia and the fact that I use a 32 bit computer. People are guessing what might be wrong at this point.

Yes, plodr. No problems with the last update (64 bit).

I recommend Pale Moon to my friends, and I use it without problems as my default browser. Accidentally I found this article: Why You Shouldn’t Use Firefox Forks Like Waterfox, Pale Moon, or Basilisk. Is it true that PM uses an older Firefox code? For sure, I prefer PM instead of Firefox.

@Plodr, I have Nvidia in my computer too.

Additional information:

I tried to install the update from here: Microsoft Update Catalog  Message: Update KB4343909 is already installed on this computer.

Checking my Windows version:
Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.228)

But in my Updates history I have this:

I ran the Troubleshooter once more, and the same thing as above happened.

DISM.exe found nothing bad (it's the first time I tried this, I think, and I'm not sure if I understood what it does).

SFC found corrupt files and repaired them. After the restart, I checked for updates, the PowerPoint Viewer update downloaded, but not installed, and now the update status shows Up to Date. No KB343909 update is installed.

Well, I know that I have to go again to Sysnative for these updates problem, and I already asked for resetting my password (I never remember it...) . But I don't have the courage now to start a topic there, give information and attach files etc.  It seems to me like climbing a mountain. :)  I will wait for the next update perhaps.

I tried the troubleshooter: it fixed a database error, repaired Windows components, and checked for pending updates. Then the powerpoint update appeared, downloaded but never been installed. Now when I check for updates I get the message that I am up to date. But checking update history I see the message for a failed installation attempt of the cumulative update. I will try again tomorrow.

I can't install the update. I tried three times and I get a different error each time.

Another point (attachment): That update for Power Point Viewer fails to be installed every time there is a new update. Could I do something for this?

Sure. There are step by step instructions here:, but I just use the online Gif resizer:

 You are welcome. :)

Sure looks like a black cat to me, Panos, and just what I said that you need.

Now it's full black.
