1.Open regedit and make sure you don't have this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\RebootRequired

if you have this key,remove it + restart

2.Run "MS Fix" from this site How do I reset Windows Update components? in AGGRESSIVE MODE

freaky,
I'm confused.

If you simply install the remaining updates ONE AT A TIME,
rebooting-even if not required-after each update,

then can you install all updates?

Install the failed updates one at a time.

From reading your post, I thought you indicated that not all updates had installed.
