    I've been getting update failures on a system at work too.
    Not sure why.
    My computer at work has no problem and I was contemplating if maybe having the full .Net 4 install (instead of just the .Net 4 client install) has something to do with it.

    If you find anything out let me know and I'll do the same.

    Try installing each update one at a time through the windows update interface, don't let them all automatically install when the machine is shutdown.

    That doesn't work either.
    I tried several times.
    For me there is one SMB update that always fails on the machine in question.

    Wow, I have been having this issue as well. For the past half month, my Win7 PC has failed the update process. If I recall correctly, there were around 20 updates too.

    • Boot into safe mode;
    • Open
      Code:
      %temp%
      on Explorer;
    • Delete everything inside it;
    • Reboot;
    • Try to apply updates again;
    • ...
    • PROFIT?
    Morgoth says thanks.
