I just received my new laptop yesterday. It's a Win 7x64 with an i7 740 processor. First thing I did after I turned out my windows firewall was to download and installed the MS updates that were available for my PC.
At the time I had 33 updates available. Everything downloaded and installed except for 6. Afterward I tried to install these updates again but they constantly keep failing. In fact my laptop will not even download them. It's stay at 0% and eventually fails.
The updates in question are 982381, 971468, 978601, 979309, 979559, 981793. Also with the following updates I get these 2 error messages: code 800B0100 & 8007065e. For 800B0100 following the instructions I downloaded the system update readiness tool. I ran it successfully but I'm getting both these codes with these fail updates.
