I have just tried to install all latest windows updates from the the microsoft website and I am getting a message saying that there is a problem on my computer preventing the updates from being installed. I have no idea what the problem is.

I had to manually install some, but its a laborious process so I am thinking of just turning the whole update thing off. Any ideas?

I recently had to re-install ie7 but this problem occured a while ago. I turned the microsoft update off. It was only yesterday that i tried again and they came back saying there was a problem.
