There are various reasons why updates don't complete, and not all of them are related to your machine. Microsoft's download servers are the busiest on the planet, and from time to time glitches occur - a 24 hour interlude may do the trick. Come back here if it doesn't.

If you go to wclick here and select the download your having trouble with, then wright down its MS Security bulletin Number and then go to click here in the search Tech - Net dialogue box type in the MS Security Bulletin number and click search then download the file and install it manually. Then disable Microsoft Windows Auto - Update restart your PC and then Reactivate Windows Auto - Update.
