Problems with MS September updates?

Is anyone experiencing problems with the September 2010 updates?

I download them, install them, and then restart as instructed.

When the PC reaches the "Welcome" screen, it displays the "configuring, don't turn off" screen and then progresses no further.

How log have you let it configure the updates? ... Some computers take longer than others.

Hi Jacee

I have tried to install them twice.

The first time:
I downloaded the updates and started the install process.
I went to bed.
I turned the PC on about 10 hours later and it hadn't installed them.

The second time:
I downloaded the updates and started the install process.
I waited for 30 minutes and there was no progress on the install.

We have been experiencing Internet/phone line problems.
It's possible, that the updates get corrupted, whilst they are being downloaded.

If no one else is experiencing problems, I guess they are getting corrupted, whilst they are being downloaded.

I have:
AMD Phenom 9750 Quad-Core (2.4 GHz)
8 GB of DDR2 RAM
WD 1 TB HDD
WD 1.5 TB HDD

Install one update at a time, that way you cand find out which one is causing the problem.

Windows Installer Broken?

Thanks for your replies.

I selected the smallest update (the IE8 one) and I was unable to install it (same problem as above).
When I start in "Safe Mode", I see a message stating, "update configuration error".

I am also unable to remove "Windows Features", like "Windows DVD Maker".
I experience the same problem, that I experience with the updates.
When I start in "Safe Mode", I see a message stating, "remove feature configuration error".

The UAC no longer complains, when I start "Computer Management", or other system altering applications.
I checked the UAC settings and they haven't changed.

I have run:
  • sfc /scannow
  • AVG
  • Spybot S&D
  • a couple of other anti-malware programs
They all state, that no errors, viruses, etc. were found.

Could the Windows Installer be broken?

The Windows Error Report says, that my DHCP service failed to start.
I have reset the DHCP service and I'll see if that makes any difference.

Additional
As I suspected, the DHCP service had no effect (I can't see why it would've anyway).

Additional 2

The updates have successfully installed.

I ran Clam AV from my Ubuntu install and it found 3 Trojans (hidden in some backup files).
I'm not sure how they could run from that location, or how they even existed, since Firefox is supposed to delete its cache when I shut it down.

The network also ran perfectly, during the update download and install process.

Now, do I risk getting the NVidia update for my graphics card?
