I receive the same update for Sp1 C++ redistribution package 2005 every five minutes via Windows auto updates. I have installed, restarted and still get the prompt to install the same updates (KB253824). Very annoying.
A search for "KB253824" @TinaMUO:disqus Micro$oft $upport returns: 'There are no documents that match your search for "KB253824"' The correct KB # is 2538242--you left off the last digit "2".
According to these links, this update has been a PITA for many users since April (installed correctly on my Win 7 Home Prem x64 on April 12) Links:
