Why does Windows Update indicate that updates are available which I have already installed?

    In the future, kindly put your question in the body of your message, not in
    the Subject line.

    As to your problem:

    The trust database for the machine has likely been corrupted and must be
    recreated. This can be achieved by renaming the existing "Catroot2" folder
    and let the system regenerate a new one.

    Do a search for the "CatRoot2" folder.
    It should be located at C:\WINDOWS\system32\CatRoot2\
    or, for Win2K, at C:\WINNT\system32\CatRoot2\

    Right-click on the "CatRoot2" folder and choose Rename
    Rename the folder to "CR2OLD"
    Close all open windows and try Windows Update again.
