I recently had a new computer built and the data from my previous hard drive was transferred to the new one.
I have Automatic Update enabled and at startup I get the yellow shield in the taskbar informing me of updates. Unfortunately, they will not install. After a few minutes the message, "Some updates could not be installed" appears and of course it lists the updates. What do I need to do to correct this problem?
If you disable automatic updates (only temporary), then go on to the Microsoft update page and select manual update, normally if there is any problem, the update site will point you in the right direction.
Hope this helps,
Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream ?
Re: Windows Security Update won't iinstall I had the same problem once. Couldn't figure it out at all but just returning to Windows Update and going thru' the whole process again after a reboot fixed the prob. Next time the updates were installed. I'm on slow dial up and guess there was a hiccup with the d/l.
If that doesn't work find out exactly which updates didn't get installed. Download them from here and run them yourself:
Don't forget if you have a firewall to check the settings
Mark why won't my laptop work?
