Windows Update Stuck on MS Works

Norman from Pennsylvania writes:

Every time I start up my computer I get a notification from Windows Update that I have an important update for Microsoft Works 9 (KB2754670). I do not have Microsoft Works 9 installed in my computer. How can I stop this message from popping up constantly?


The first thing I would try is to manually install the update. You might have some component of MS Works or MS Works installed and not realize it. You can download and run the update manually by clicking here [1], then clicking “download” and running the program.

If the update fails and you get a message saying “it could not locate MS Works or it does not apply to your system,” you can manually hide the update by going to Windows Update, clicking “Show available updates” or “…updates are available” and then right-clicking on that update and clicking “Hide update”.
