Oh boy! That could be a good thing. Did you check by clicking on Express and Custom on the Windows Updates page?

Make sure to click on Custom as well. In the left panel a list of updates may display that is needed. Check to see if any for Microsoft Security Essentials is available, such as:

Microsoft Security Essentials(1)

I did see that one for MSE had failed in the last screen shot.

Oops!

 

In the beginning of this thread Joe posted a link to Network Repair which I went to and it fixed my problem.

 

I had 3 Security Updates that would not install.
