Did you restart your computer? When did you get the 'stop' code: 80080008?

Hello Bofonchio

* You say you have just installed Win7.
Have you the DVD in case of need?
Did you create a System Restore point?
Please also list your Security Software

* Have you checked in Event Viewer ?

Start - Event Viewer - Windows Logs - System & Application.
Check for any red error messages to do with this problem.{ Updates}

*What is listed { as regards your problem} in Windows Update - View Update History.

*Clean out App data / local / temp.

Start - Run - type in %temp% - ok - organize - select all - organize - delete { note you may be asked to skip some - that is ok}

* Re your update settings -

I suggest you change them to notify you but let you choose when to download them.
Do a few at a time only rather than "oodles" at once.
