Try updating them manually then pick one at a time to download.Maybe just the 1 bad one stopping the rest.

Prior to this event I had trouble deleting a program and now I find that I cannot install Microsoft anti virus and other various software, leading me to think that this is a windows installer issue---can anything be done with this installer--it is switched on to manual in services.

Normally a virus will stop you from downloading security programs.

Maybe give this a run to see if it finds any problems.It works very fast.

Or try this installer.

There appears to be a problem with one of this weeks updates, namely KB2676562 which will not install correctly and is stopping some of the others as well. If you untick this particular one you might find the rest will install OK.

I have no idea what the problem is as it installed OK on one of my machines but not my laptop.
