Hi greymatters :)

It's normal for certain Windows Updates to fail when you install all of them at the same time. Did you try to install them individually or at least bit by bit and not all of them together?

Hi Aura! thank you for replying.

 

I did a vast majority of them all together. About 174 I think all together. Then from that 2 failed. Then I think two or three more times I did a few updates seperately where 4 failed. So 6 failed I know I put 5 in the title, I messed up.

What I suggest you to do right now is to try them one by one, and if one doesn't work, move to the other. See how many you can install from that :)

Well actually when I check for updates it says I'm up to date, but I was looking at the update history and that's where it says it failed. I'm just now realizing though that maybe that might just be a log of recent events and they may have installed at a later attempt?

They may have installed at a later attempt, yes. Also, it's possible that these updates were removed (discontinued) and replace by other Windows Updates. Someone posted a thread similar to you today, here.

For me you would be. You could always try to flush the files and folders under C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\, then restart your computer and click on the Check for updates button in the Windows Updates control panel to see if updates are found.

No problem, glad that I could be of assistance :)
Have a good day!

Edit : Just looked up one of my fully updated Windows 7 VM, and I found the KB3025390 installed, if you want to double-check it to make sure it failed or it installed properly. However, none of the other KBs were present.
