Any errors when trying to install them? And are you downloading them from the Microsoft Windows Update Site or are they automatic updates?

try this

go to tools
internet options
trusted sites
Uncheck the "Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone" checkbox and add the following sites to your Zone. You do this by simply typing in the addresses below into the field next to the "Add" button.
