windows update keep installing "kb2518864"/"kb2572073"/"kb2633880" repeatedly

Original title: windows update keep installing kb2518864/kb2572073/kb2633880 since this morning

The event viewer shows msgs that says each is installed successfully but they don't show up in control panel 'add or update program' list and immediately afterwards it tries to install the 3 again and again.(all of them tries to update .net framework 2.0sp2 or 3.5sp1)

BTW, I'm running XP Pro SP3 with all latest updates.

It looks like MS has fixed the problem, all of a sudden the yellow reminder icon disappeared from below the screen. A number of people has reporded the same at end of this thread.

It seems to have been fixed here as well, even without clearing the update cache.  Just all of a sudden the "updates waiting" icon went away.
