So, would you say my problem is fixed? I'm still having problems getting the rest of my updates to install.
My goal in starting this thread was to get Windows Update back into functioning condition and the numerous updates that have been collecting installed.

Not sure. I restarted my computer and Windows Update said I needed to install an update to resume using it.

Okay, that update is in.
It looks like I still have 9 important updates and 4 optionals.
