    Hello,
    Today I got 2 updates in windows update, checked to install both, 1 of them installed, the other one failed to install.
    Tried running the update again, but same result.

    its the update
    Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB974431)

    Haven't had any other problems with windows update yet.

    I'm using Windows 7 RTM Build 7600 64 Bit

    Can you read the update history?

    There are no comments about WHY the update failed?

    Check the administrator logs in event viewer.... sometimes they have more specific info about failures.

    Remember, we are guessing unless we have had the problem and found a fix.

    No.

    That one did work, I got this message:
    Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0xc004f050: Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB974431).
    Hmm looks like somethings wrong with my windows activation...
    7Loader says I've got a Frankenstein build of Windows 7 o_O
