I am completing a Windows 7 full reinstall and have a problem.  The reinstall went well except for Windows Updates.  I ran a Windows Update.  It didn't show any specific items but continued with a the update.  Last night it showed that when I selected the shut down button that there were updates to be installed.  It showed 193 updates.  I've had that happen before and it worked so I went ahead and started in the install of updates.  It ran most of the night and most failed.  I would think of the 193 only 20 were installed.


Now when I go to Windows Update it has only found 6 updates that I have been able to install.  Is there any way to clear out the failed updates and redo the installation.  I just don't know what to do.  Please help.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
