Windows 7: Updates refusing to install

21 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Updates refusing to install

I have been getting automatic updates for ages and they've been installing on the fly with no problems. Suddenly they just stopped installing and I can't fogure out why.

They seem to install but when I then reboot it says 'Failed to install updates' and they go back to telling me again I need to install updates! This is particularly annoying because I have bought Windows 8 but it won't upgrade and I am guessing this is something to do with the problem. The upgrade went all the way through and then just said couldn't install, reverting to Windows 7, no reasons or anything.

Anyone got any suggestions?
