Some updates wouldn't install on my computer. What should I do? Should I not install them? Is there another way to get them to work?

Hi there,

Why not post the update details here? Also, you should pop the update number(s) into Google and see if it's a common problem, you may even find someone has posted a workaround for you to follow.

Cheers

Troy

I have seen this problem be the result of Service Pack 1 finding a driver it doesn't like on a system. Do you already have SP1 installed?

Click the start button then right click on "Computer" and go to "Properties". It will say something like, Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1.

They are: An update for IE 7 (KB953838) and a security update from last month (KB950582). Yes, they fail.

Download kb947562 from here. Once the download completes close all open browsers and programs.
*Right* click Windows6.0-KB947562-x86.msu and choose ' Run as administrator'. Follow the prompts.

Your antivirus program and/or firewall might be blocking the updates from getting installed. Have you checked to see if all incoming connections are getting blocked? You might want to try reinstalling your AV program as well.
