When I do Microsoft update I get that a critical update is KB2467174. It appears to download it, but fails on the instalation and says "Insert the Microsoft Visual C++2008 Redistributable disk Service Pack 1". I have no such disk. All other updates are OK.

Hello

Please note you don't need the disk, just download and install the exe file from Microsofts website which can be found here and then try the update again and that should fix that problem.

Thanks

I've done that. It's when I do a Windows Update it tells me there is a security update and thats when I have the problem described.

Hello, I would like you to stop and then start the Windows update service and try again, to do this read below

Click start and goto run
Type services.msc and hit enter
Go down to windows update and double click this
Press stop then apply
Now click start and apply
Now click ok and exit services

Now read the following article by Microsoft which can be found here

Instead of performing the task your-self you may wish to download Microsoft Fix it from that page
