I renamed the DataStore.edb to DataStoreold.edb in the Windows\SoftwareDistribution file to remove the list of "Failed" updates. Then went into Windows Update from IE9- Tools- Windows Update. Shows 51 Updates plus 6 Optional Updates. I selected the Updates that were marked "Security Updates For Windows" For a test install. After about a minute or two it showed "Failed" error 800570570. I then went to MS Update site and typed in one the the kbxxxxxxx's and installed ok. One of the things I found by Googling is that the failers usually occur because of a bad internet connection. What puzzles me about that is My desktop is wireless and have no trouble with updates and my wifes laptop on the same network wireless connection does updates ok. Now I'm wondering if the laptop that I am working on has a faulty wireless hardware. Although I don't have any problem getting on the Internet with it.

I have run that program several times in the last few days hoping somehthing will happen, but no change, Thanks anyway. One of the things I am going to try in the next few days is to turn off the built in WiFi on the Laptop (Toshiba L300) and put in a USB WiFi to see if by chance the built in one is acting erratically, Because I am not having any trouble with my desktop with a USB WiFi or my wifes Laptop. The Either Net connection on the Laptop is inactive and can't seem to activate it so I can try that.

Try to install the updates again. Of course they fail. After that post your C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log

Sorry to take so long to respond: Solved problem the hard way. All The suggestions that were made I tried with no success. I removed the Seagate HDD and downloaded the Sea Tool. Put the HDD on my Desktop, and ran most of the tools of Sea Tool. Got the HDD back to out of box state. Reinstalled back into Laptop. Ran the Windows 7 Home Premium Update using the "Custom" choice, left the Product Key blank and unchecked the box. Let it run the rest of the setup at that point and load up to the Desktop. From within Windows Installed the setup disk again and did the setup using the "Upgrade" option. When it got to putting in the Product Key. It took the Key and successfully finished the install. I then ran all the updates that were important and they worked this time. Then I upgraded to the SP1 and that ran successfully, and the updates have been downloading and installing without errors or Failed error codes.
Thanks again for all the suggested forums.
