For the second time in two months while checking for windows updates after installing newer updates it detects a older update from the past 2013-2016 which was never installed on my system. Any clue as to why this is happening? I did a clean install back in December of 2016. The update that popped up to install last night was KB3185319 which was released back in September of last year; this update was suggested after installing KB4012218 March 2017 preview of monthly quality rollup.

Can't say why KB3185319 never installed on your system, but it is a security update for Internet Explorer, so you should go ahead and allow it to install. Check to make sure IE is set to install updates. In IE, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner. Open About Internet Explorer; make sure the Install new versions box is checked.
