3) install ONLY that update. reboot upon prompt, wait it out
4) open windows update again, go back to the area where you can check what updates you want installed.... check the remaining boxes and install ... reboot when prompted....
5) I went back into windows updater and confirmed that all of the updates were successful.
YIPPEE! it all worked. This is the first time since getting windows 7 that I have had any problems with updates, so I guess I can't complain too much. Hope it works for all of you - Carl
Yep very similar to a fix I have used in Vista and now have done same in 7
1: Go to Administrative Tools/Services, and stop the Windows Update service.
2: Then go to the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and delete ALL of the files and folders.
3: Then go back to Services and restart the Windows Update service which will recreate ALL of those folders again.
4: Then manually run the Update Service and everything should work. If you don't know how to manually start updates, reboot & Auto Updates should kick in.
The history doesn't show until you get some on board but the installed ones are there in "Installed Updates"
