    For several months I have had problems each day when asked to install "Windows Updates", some days I get 4 or 5 updates or more, for a long time it installed all except one. This has now expanded so I have three updates that will not install for some reason. It creates a restore point then tries and fails each time. I am using Norton Antivirus and have even disabled that, but I still can get the updates to install. I have never had this problem before. I also have a laptop and another PC computer that has done these updates, so why problems with this one? It's driving me crazy.

    I am enclosing a copy of the error message I get together with the list of failed attempts (only recent ones). I would appreciate any help please.

    My history ofupdates only goes back to 03/01/11 and this is the copy of that:-

    Interesting to see that

    The first failure on this list was "Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Office2010 (KB2510690) 32-bit Edition. This never showed up as being Successful andhas not been listed since 06.08.11

    Further failures followed this however

    I tried installing a copy of Norton's Internet Security that came with my motherboard. I have never seen such a mess in regard to updates. For me to even get SP1 to install (trial install only) I had to shutdown real time and any boot options. Basically I shut down everything I could in that protection scheme.

    Aside from that, there is a WindowsUpdate.log in the Windows directory you might zip and attach. There are also a ReportingEvents.log in the Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder and if you have a failed install, there may be an individual log file for it. Search for the KB number.log, although the one I had I could not get much from it.

    If you can zip those and attach using the paperclip, it might help us see what is going on.

    One thing I will say in advance, the internet connection is very important with these updates.

    Hi Kaos, I did a check last light and MS showed 10 updates the first one being 1.0Gb (will take over an hour to carry out).

    This is the list of those listed: (Sorry can't find a way to zip these files).

    I have started on the first one - is it best to do a re-boot after each one or just work my way throught the list. I am not saving them just clicked on "Open", my connection is not normnally a problem.

    What exactly is the list of downloads you show in your attachment. It contains downloads for different bit versions of Windows and different CPU types...? I actually see 7 pertinent downloads and 6 are language packs.

    And you do know about the Microsoft Catalog update site?

    Microsoft Update Catalog

    To zip a file all you do is right click it and select send to - Compressed (zip) folder.

    Hi kaos, You said download (KB976932) from :-
    Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Windows 7and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=5842)

    When I go to the site it shows three versions of this, which one should I use?


    [TABLE="class: files"]
    [TR]
    [TD="class: file-name"]1. windows6.1-KB976932-IA64.exe[/TD]
    [TD="class: size"]511.0 MB[/TD]
    [TD="class: download"][/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD="class: file-name"]2. windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe[/TD]
    [TD="class: size"]903.0 MB[/TD]
    [TD="class: download"][/TD]
    [/TR]
    [TR]
    [TD="class: file-name"]3. windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe[/TD]
    [TD="class: size"]537.0 MB[/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]

    When I capture an images I can't find a way to zip this, certainly a right click does not give me that option as Saltgrass has suggested.

    Going back to my origional posting each time I start my computer it wants to install the same updates, some times new ones are installed but the following never install, and end up with an error message. It all started with the MS office update failure. (Back in une/July)

    This is the current list of updates not being installed:-

    If running a 64bit system, most likely #2. If 32bit (x86) #3. Do the downloads one at a time (especially the Windows SP1). Then do any further system updates in groups, say of 3, 4 or 5. Just pick a convenient number to split the total by. As has been said, some updates will depend on others already being installed, if they fail, think of a line of dominoes toppling.

    Hi,

    I downloaded #2 as suggested, I turned off my Norton antivirus then after the long download tried the installation. Almost immediately I received the message below:-


    I am wondering why I should need to install this as I am already running Windows 7 with service pack 1. (it's 64 bit).

    Any other suggestions.

    Hi all, I have spent most of the morning trying to install the updates as listed below. I have tried installing them one at a time, but no success.

    I did switch off my Norton Antivirus.

    Could it be a problems with the MS Office 2010?

    It's such a nuisance every day when I am asked to install updates and these never get installed. As I have said before my Laptop did all the updates with no problems (weeks ago).

    Any suggestions will be appreciated

    This is the total copy of the updates I am having problems with:-

    Hi Mike,

    As soon as I clicked on System File Integrity Check, it loaded a website that Ihave seen before and had a lot of problems with, it says it's free but I recallit's limited to the number of errors it will correct without paying. I checkedthe web and the general opinion is NOT recommended to use it.

    I seem to recall that I could not get rid of it last time, so not too keen totry again. Can you give me any assurances about this?

    As I said I am not happy to install "Registry Booster" again.

    Any other comments from others would be appreciated
