Windows update keeps installing the same update

Looking through my Microsoft Update log, for the past three weeks, the same update has been downloading and successfully installed by windows updater. The update is Security Update for Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 (KB969856). Obviously I have Virtual PC installed, and I am running XP Pro SP2. How can this be stopped?

"I believe I have resolved this issue on my own, though I would love to know if there are other ways to resolve it. Here is what has worked for me now for almost 24 hours and through a manual search for updates.

After deciding to give up on Virtual-PC, and going to uninstall the program, I found I had two copies installed, Virtual PC 2007 and Virtual PC 2007 SP1. I'm not sure how I ended up with both, but I had. I uninstalled both, and then reinstalled SP1. I was almost immediately prompted for the same update again (KB969856), but after installing that and restarting, I have not been prompted again. Like I said, I'm not sure how I ended up with this particular configuration, but hopefully it will help others if they run into the same issue."
