Hello, I have been having trouble lately installing Microsoft updates, when I click to download updates I will either get a message telling me that I must be logged on as administrator to download updates, (I am logged in as administrator), or, I may be able to download one update but not another and gives me an error code 80200053, the failed update download is: Cumulative update for media centre for Win Vista KB982480. Has anyone any ideas on this one?

Looks like it can go either way, Windows Updates should automatically determine which one you need.
But you can try downlaoding it manually from here... just scroll down a little and you will see it.
