Please post the names of the files (preferable by KB) that are not being updated for further troubleshooting steps

If you are not sure what i mean - when you go to windows updates - what are the updates that say they need to be installed?

It looks like a lot of them are office related. I have seen this issue with updates and office 2003. The resolution was to run the updates with the office install disk in the drive. If you still have the install disk for office try the following:

1) Browse to and delete all of the items in the following folder: C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution

2) Insert Office install disk - and close out any autorun windows

3) open Internet Explorer and choose from the top menu - Tools > Windows Update

Allow windows update to run - and let us know what updates were not installed
