    A few days ago I ran 'Software Update' and the only update available was 'iMac EFI Firmware Update' which I installed. The problem is, now every-time I run update, this update is always there (version 1.3). I keep installing it and being told told that it installed successfully.

    Why does it keep appearing as a new update?

    You need to install it manually go to:
    Apps > Utilities > EFI Firmware Update

    I did that and was prompted to Shut Down the Mac. After a re-start it made no difference - the update appeared again for download. Any other ideas?

    Did you follow the correct procedure, did it update the Boot ROM Version?

    I am not sure it did! There were no steps to follow - it just prompted me to Shut Down.

    When you booted back up did a bar fill up under the apple logo?
    I updated my macbook, it told me to shut down then press and hold down the power button until it bleeped.
