2 recommended updates failed.

Windows 7 hp 32bit.
During update 2 of 9 updates failed.
Reason: Powersupply got cut off.
I think the 2 updates where downloaded, but are not installed.
Updates in question: kb982018 and kb2529073.

Q: Is there a way to clear the updates and do the updating again?
Thanks.

You don't need to do anything as Windows will pick up from where it left off when you had a power cut.

You can go to Uninstall a Program in Control Panel and click Installed Updates in the left column to check whether an update installed correctly or not.

From there you can also uninstall any updates that may be causing you a problem.

Thanks for answering.
Well, windows doesn't install the 2 updates.
It runs the installations procedure, but at the end installation fails.
The 2 updates can not be seen in "installed updates".
What is the location of the 2 updates download location?
Maybe if I delete them, I can download and install again?
Thanks.

You can't delete them if they haven't been installed.

Their download location is Start>All Programs>Windows Update.
