Windows 7: Windows Updates - specifically the Games for Windows Live one

Cheers guys. It's not good that ms has messed up again. But at least we can all be confident our systems are ok. The whole games for windows is dodgy. Even the games explorer within win 7 is garbage and buggy. Mine takes an age to launch sometimes. It's obviously doing some kind of scan. Prob best to avoid it but some games force it on you!

see previous post I already did
see third post in there's a m/$ rep asking for installer logs.
Hello All,

The issue symptoms that everyone is describing appears to be a Windows Installer Error.
Morever, the error 80070643 is a generic error message that can have many causes. To better understand the issue and cause, we would need details from a Windows Installer log file.

Though the steps are somewhat advanced, any help from the community would be appreciated. To provide us with details of the instlal error, you would need to do the following:
  1. Turn on Windows Instlal logging: Click on this link: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9723030
  2. Make an attempt to install the update again.
  3. Once you get the error 80070643, you will need to go look for the log file. The log file is located in the system temporary folder and the file name is random, but begins with the letters "Msi" and end with a .log extension. To locate the Temp folder location: Click Start, type (%temp%), then press Enter.
  4. Once the temporary folder is open, you need to locate a very recent file that begins with "msi".
  5. Open the file with notepad, and copy and paste its content as a reply.

Regards,

Kim

Games for Windows 3.5 Update

This is even stranger then I thought but could explain it. This is the content to my log file:
Newer version already installed.
=== Logging stopped: 3/13/2012 17:05:18 ===

Now what?
