Repeated Failed Security Updates

Hi there, I have just joined this forum and need help with an ongoing issue with my PC. I have been having consistent failing of the attached log of Security Updates & Security Updates for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows 7 for sometime now. The automatic run and install updates fail's repeatedly. I am not a computer tech, I have read the help in windows 7 and have not found the answer's to this problem. Please help. Answer's in basic non tech speak please.

Windows 7

Hi ladycruiserride. If you go into Control Panel and then click on Troubleshooting a page will open showing a range of 5 sections, each offering to troubleshoot and repair a selection of items. The last section of the 5 is named System & Security and the first item in that section is 'Fix Problems with Windows Update'. Simply click on that and a Wizard will take you through the procedure. I recently had Update problems and running this solved things for me.
Good luck,

Check these links for some good advice on Windows Update problems.

Support for Microsoft Update technical problems - troubleshooting

You might want to consider upgrading to Internet Explorer 9 too, it is more secure than IE8.

You need to select the correct region and architecture i.e. are you using Windows 7 32-bit or Windows 7 64-bit?
