Neverless uninstall it,sometimes programs for monitoring network cause problems as well as I said before,uninstalling Stardock programs also don't help?

1 update still won't install

KB978207, which is "Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows 7." The update is a whopping 7.1MB compared to the other updates, which were between 50-1000KB (none of them reached 1000).

According to my observances, I notice that when I restart, Windows Update only seems to operate for a short amount of time, whether it finishes or not. So apparently this update is too big to complete in that amount of time.

So how do I get around this?

DETAILS:

Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows 7 (KB978207)

Installation date: ‎2/‎11/‎2010 12:32 AM

Installation status: Failed

MS article Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 service pack installation fails with error 0x80004005
You can try update all drivers,to do this use this program Free Driver Update Software - Device Doctor
It's freeware

EDIT
You can also installed hotfixes from Microsoft Download Center (not from Windows Update)

If really nothing help I suggest contact with MS Support,from this link they also are working on the same issue.

nope. nothing worked. and contacting MS support, that won't work either, they don't know squat. I'm the phone for at least an hour, getting nowhere, those idiots are telling me how to do something that anyone with a computer should know how to do, they aren't solving the problem. And they're all foreign.

brady, wouldn't that be a bad idea? I would need to install all of those updates over again! Do you know how long that would take?

it's not that big of a deal actually. Most of these updates that people install automatically are usually installed on test machines on test networks before installed on live boxes. The past 2 months of updates have caused severe issues on live environments, most updates haven't been released off the test networks due to their instability at the moment. The reason I say to uninstall feb and 1/2 of Jan is due to initial updates and revised updates. If you only uninstall the feb, your jan pre req updates will still be intact, thus prompting for these same failing feb updates. If you poke around on this forum you will notice something very similar in most posts... "After installing updates * doesn't work" or "BSOD After updating"... you get the idea.
