Just looking at my update history and it looks like I haven't been able to install updates for the following:

FAILED Status
Windows 7 Service Pack 1
Security Updates for Windows 7
Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1
Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 4

Error found:
Code 800B0100 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.

Sad times, haha. I feel like my computer is slowing down. Please, any help is greatly appreciated. :)

Hey coxchris!

Thanks for the advice. I allowed the Microsoft Fixit Tool to run and restarted the computer. Re-ran Windows Update and more of the updates installed. Thanks!

However, I am still unable to update the following:

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (KB976932)

Thanks again! :)

Should I even think about running in aggressive mode?

Is it too aggressive? haha.
