Windows 7: Automatic update fails on reboot

Nope, still got 8 updates to do...So Option three is done now, still got 8 updates to do, am I supposed to do them now? It doesn't say in Option 3...I have now done the 8 updates again for the 20th time. It wouldn't suck so bad if it didn't tie up my PC for half an hour every time. So nothing has worked. Gonna try this now: Windows update never finished

Is it giving you an error number or message when you try to install them and it fails?

No, just says failure to update, restarting in the flowery windows 7 screen. I am doing them one at a time now and it's working so far. I was able to get the 4 important updates to go all at once. It's the optional ones that are rerquiring individual attention. A couple didn't need rebooting, but most do, so this is really tedious at about 15 minutes a session.

While I'm at it, what make MS think I want this BING DESKTOP BS in my system? Now it is in my update list and there seems no way to get rid of it. Seems like they put it there hoping you'll just forget and select all one day, and then it's more spamware installed in your system.

That's good news.

For optional updates you do not want, you could jusy hide them to not see them anymore.

So how do I get it to quit asking me to install Bing desktop? I tried to install it and then uninstall it, hoping that it would no longer show in the updates. That didn't work, when I checked for updates again, it was still showing. How do you make something go away in the update list?

You're most welcome. Yeah, some of those options are hidden just a bit.

Same Issues with little luck

Hello, I have the exact same issues as listed in this thread. I have tried every solution I know or have read about. Is there something I can do outside of reinstalling everything??

Hello Grandquads, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Please go ahead and create a new thread for your issue instead since they are rarely the exact same. This way you could get better help.
