You may have to temporarilydisable any firewall or av program on in order to see them install without any problem. Often something running in the background will tend to hamper the normal download and install of MS updates at times.

That didn't work. I shut down my anti-virus and spyware tools and still fails. When I tell windows to do a repair it doesn't find anything either. Right now I'm manually reinstalling the update readiness tool. It's in process now. It seems stuck though. IDK I'm gonna let go and see if does anything.

The protection programs were the first thought while it could well be another type of program seeing a clash of some type. Are you checking for updates manually or is that set for automatic updates by chance?

I set it to inform me, but not to automatically install. Other updates work, just these three so far haven't worked.

It seems my only other option might be to do an upgrade repair. This is an extreme solution. Is there another way to repair? If I do have to do the upgrade repair is this going to affect things like my iTunes and pictures that I have saved on my computer?

Personally I find a repair install the last resort other then a full clean start all over where you have to go through the steps of getting everything back on again. The option to upgrade resulting in the repair of the existing installation will preserve just about everything you have on now while refreshing the OS itself by replacing the main OS files.

If you could hold off and not be in a rush to get those three on however maybe some new troubleshooting information will be coming from others having similar problems with the same updates. Sometimes when certain updates cause problems for numerous people a workaround is then found to see them go on and work.

If you feel the present installation of 7 is troublesome on it's own even without the updates you may want to consider an upgrade repair or full clean copy of 7 to bring in a fresh registry to work with. Again those two options should be last resort choices only and if you have everything already backed up ahead of time.

Well 2 of those are old ones that failed. Only one was released yesterday. I'm backing up some of files right now. If those 2 updates aren't really that risky I can certainly wait. I just don't like having loose ends like this.

Have you tried downloading and installing the updates manually?
