    I've found that after a while, hidden updates get shown again. For example, on two of my computers I get offered a Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 Update for Windows Vista. I've got no idea why, considering I'm running Windows 10. Understandably, the update fails to install. However, if I hide the update, before too long it is offered again.

    I've run some uninstall tools for VS 2005 from Microsoft, in an attempt to stop the update being offered, but they find nothing to cleanup.
