Windows 7: kb2731847 on W7-64 fails "Not enough storage.."

kb2731847 on W7-64 fails "Not enough storage.."

I had 11 critical updates that could not be installed via MS-Update. The updates failed and the installations were reverted at Windows restart.

After having tried "Fix-It" to no avail, I tried to install the updates one at a time and the first succeeded, but now I'm stuck on kb2731847 where the installation ends with this error message "Not enough storage to process this command"

Have found some articles about this but they relate to Vista and XP - none for W7.

Do you have the registry tweak to disable ntfs file compression? If so that might cause your problem.

To the best of my knowledge, no. Read somewhere else that this might also be explained with a defect harddisk, but would like to know if this is a plausible explanation before going the long way with making an ISO CD etc.

WEI fails to complete, fails the "video" portion...
On the gaming PC that I'm fixing for my son's friend, the WEI fails to complete, and fails the "video" portion... could the old 9800 GTX 512MB video card be failing?

Not a major issue, of course, purely cosmetic, but still a minor annoyance none-the-less: I have a number of card reader drives that I never use (haven't even removed that plastic cover tape from them to help keep the dust out) that show when viewing the "Computer" window that displays drives. ...
Moving bootmanager from "Storage" partition to "System" partition
Hey, whats up? New here. Right now my hard drive is split up into two partitions: System and Storage. However, when installing 7, for some odd reason, the installer put the boot manager (I think it is the boot manager) on my Storage partition, when I want it on the System partition. Is there a...
