you could clear out your windows update folder that might stop you from installing them

GO search from start ...click on all files and folders...type in windowsupdate
click search...right click on the one that looks like notepad..open it...edit...select all...right click any blue file ..click delete follow the prompts save changes ..replace folder or file..folder should be empty

try updates again
