Win7 - "View Update History" vs. "Installed Update"
I just migrated to a new hard drive and did a clean install of Win7 (did not have SP1 on the DVD).
During the Updating process, windows stopped working and I received an error, something about running Update again, etc. So I rebooted and finished the Upgrading process...no further problems noted.
However, I view the "Installed Updates" and see that KB2604114 and about 20 other updates "FAILED." But when I view the "Update History," it lists KB2604114 and the others as "installed."
I'm confused. Are the updates I'm referring to "FAILED" or are they properly installed?

In your description, you might have switched the observations.
"History" is a log that tracks attempts at installing specific updates. One user might have multiple failed attempts for a particular update; or multiple successful attempts if one was looking for a source of a problem.
"Installed updates" records the last successful installation of a specific update; no timestamp, just the date.
