* What KB numbers do you refer to?

* Have you checked in Event Viewer ?
Start - Event Viewer - Windows Logs - System & Application.
Check for any red error messages to do with your updates problem.

*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.

* Always make sure you have a current system restore point prior to downloading anything.

* Sometimes in order to get updates to install properly, you may need to do them manually.

* Google / visit > Microsoft's Download Center:

* Search for each update code. {starts with the letters "KB" and followed by a set of numbers.}
Click the link for the download.
Click Download and Run.
You'll need to accept the agreement and then click Continue.
Repeat this process for each download that Windows Updates was unable to install.
Run Microsoft update again, click Check for updates. Hopefully it will show that you are completely patched.
