Windows 7: Can't Update

Can't Update

Recently, 6 updates were released including: Security Update for Microsoft Office Excel 2007 (KB982308),Security Update for Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 (KB979441),Security Update for Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 (KB982158),Security Update for Microsoft Office Publisher 2007 (KB982124),Security Update for the 2007 Microsoft Office System (KB982312),Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Junk Email Filter (KB983486). When I update, they go through the process and right when it is finished it says "Some Updates Failed to Install. Failed: 6 updates. I waited a week to see if Microsoft would fix the updates and tried installing them again, but I got the same message. How can I update these things.

Hi, CPSlowik.

If you'd rather not do the Windows Update reset manually, I suggest the Microsoft Fix it, How do I reset Windows Update components?
Quote:
To reset the Windows Update components automatically, click the Fix it button or link. Click Run in the File Download dialog box, and then follow the steps in the Fix it wizard.

Note this Fix it Solution has two modes Default and Aggressive. You should run the Fix it solution in Default mode and determine if it resolves your problem with Windows Update before running it in Aggressive mode.
