Download and install the following

Step seven
If you are using an antivirus program (and you should be), temporarily disable it...usually done with a right click of the icon in your system tray next to the clock. If Windows Update works, contact your antivirus program vendor for an update.

Step eight
Rebooting your computer to safe mode
login as the "Administrator"
rename "c:\windows\system32\catroot2" to "c:\windows\system32\catroot2old."

Step 9
If all the above have failed, open c:\windows\windowsupdate.log in notepad, choose Edit > Select All from menu, hit the DEL key. Save the file. Visit Windows update again. After failure, ATTACH (do not copy and paste) the c:\windows\windowsupdate.log to your next post and someone will come along and help you.

It load and tried to install. (Alot further then in the past) MSG states The instruction at "0x7c9122ac" referenced memory at 0xfffffffc. The menory could not read.
Any suggestions or am I doomed to buy a new computer and gain a boat anchor?

one of my esteemed colleagues suggests that you download the file manually

http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en

and see if it will install this way

A very good call
