Hello-

I have not been able to install any windows updates for some time now, they seem to download just fine but I always receive the message that 'The following updates were not installed...'

In any case, are the windows updates all that necessary? I haven't had any luck downloading from the Microsoft website either...

Thanks

No go on either fix, within the Background Intelligence Transfer Service, settings were already to automatic and had been started; and the second post was a bad link with a 'suspended account' notice...

Other thoughts?

My link worked when I posted it, wouldn't have posted it otherwise.
There is more than one place to find it though:
http://lifeisarainbo...-update-errors/ and step 4.
