Windows Update installs all updates but this one.. Why?

See attachment. Has anyone else had trouble installing this update? I just ran a Windows validator on Windows 7 (legitcheck.hta) with said it was valid software (duh), and I have been able to install other updates and patches, except this one, which has to do with:

Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Restributible Package (KB973924)

I have it downloaded, but each time I try to install it, it fails. Is there a reason for this?

Hi and welcome

What error message are you getting on fail?

If no message you can go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search) go to the windows logs>applications tab, and systems tab. Look for updates and see what event ID and "source" are listed and let us know what they are.

If you also had other updates in the same session you may need to shutdown your system and install the updates you already took - before you can obtain the one highlighted.

I will start by saying I built the machine myself and originally I thought it was a ram stick, found one that I took out and the freezing stopped but it was the coincidence. It will freeze sometimes within 5 minutes or 1 hour. It is seemingly random. It will freeze with the full 16gb of ram and...
