About that much, seemingly, regardless of the version one's running. So many updates fail on a regular basis it's not even funny. More ridiculous, recently I've been noticing Windows 7 doesn't even automatically check all the updates it claims are important. Yes, I have it set to install Windows Updates automatically, but this would still prompt me to "start" the updates. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with my having Microsoft Office 2003 (the 2003 version of MS Word, Excel, PPT, etc.) but, that's not an excuse. They're prompting me to install updates for my software they're JUST releasing, and yet they fail seemingly almost every time? Do they even test the sh!t they release to the public? And how come sometimes they'll install if I manually do it myself as opposed to when I try doing it automatically? Why should it be any different?
