Windows Updates download but won't instal

  ernieernie 21:04 05 Jul 07

I have a new computer (HP Touchsmart) with Vista operating system.
I have the Windows updates set to automatic and they download alright but they won't install - at least the ones that are marked as essential or recommended won't, the optional ones do. The computer goes through the motions, telling me that it is installing but ends up telling me that they failed!
An error code 8007007B is reported but on following the links a number of similar numbers are listed but no actual help.
If I am to believe all I read it is important that this works. Can anyone help, please?

have you tried visiting Windows Update personally? I had the same problem, so just the updates to Notify only and got them myself.
