Windows Update, lately, shows up every day with the same ol' update. It says I should download two things, of which I only pick one. After its all done, it says it has finished, but the next day it will ask me to download the same thing over again.

How can I make Windows Update stop telling me to download the same things over and over?

Either disable Windows update or install the update.

he said it is already installed so how can he install it again if it is going on an infinite loop

eventually I've had the same problem before but it was solved from the second time , I think the problem here was that sometimes windows asks to restart now and you don't so that "might" be the cause as in my case but I had it solved in the second time.
I'm not sure if windows asked you to restart

if the update is the direct X update there is a problem with it on some pc's that use the autoupdate feature of WinXP and 2K. To correctly download and install it, don't let the autoupdate get the file. Instead visit http://www.windowsupate.com to download & install it manually. Once you get past the direct X update the autoupdate should start working correctly.
