You could try to restore your pc to a time prior to the problem and then installing updates manually and individually.

You could try this from Microsoft.

Click here.

Remember to choose the proper one 64bit or 32 bit.

Did you ever run chkdsk or maybe sfc /scannow.

Hi Rafman7 you certainly are not having a lot of luck with getting your updates fixed.

This is the 4th thread with the same problem.You have to try and stick to the one thread if you can.

If you are not sure how to run any of remedies that have previously been suggested just ask and someone will explain how to do it.

Have you checked in Services to make sure Windows Updates is set to automatic and has started.
