Microsoft updates and Installing

  driving man 01:38 15 Nov 05

Recently my automatic updates downloaded many files but 3 of them could or would not install at all' I tried many ways (as administrator -just in case ) but no go. On trying to install a warning popped up saying these files cannot be installed. I used the files numbers (eg KB896688 ) to access microsofts site downloaded them individually and installed them with no problem.
Question is why didn't they install the first time when all the other files did

Is these any solution available that works. I've had this problem with update KB896688 for weeks.
It downloads, but is unable to install.

all I can say Waveneneyweb is to do as I did and instore them manually ----why automatic doesnt work on this download I dont know as many others do download

I've tried that & now none of the updates since that one will install!!!!

It could be the firewall is blocking the download otherwise check if the BITS (background intelligent transfer service) service has been corrupted

There are certain occasions when Windows installs such updates when you Turn Off your system.

A notice comes up warning that the installation(s) are being done and you should wait until they are completed before shutting down.

It might/could be the reason for your problem.

Stuartli, not in this case --- there were a whole lot of updates as I had just reset to factory settings and all except 3 went in. It was only by luck that I realised I could do them individually and not use auto
