    Maybe they eventually succeed, I do not bother to keep score, but it seems like an awful lot of them fail over nd over. Is there a reason for this? Maybe the time is wrong. I have watched them download until done then when install they fail. And show a try again message. One failed just now - an Important one just failed for the 5th time.

    Go to the failed updates, Bill and right click on some of them.
    Each one will give you an error code.
    Copy and paste them in your reply.

    Are you sure Bill, that your version of windows is legitimate. Is it showing as activated?

    Please note that I'm not saying that you would deliberately run a pirate copy. But if it were
    a machine brought second hand, then who knows?

    How to check activation:
    1. Click the Start/windows orb in the bottom left corner of the screen.

    2. Right click on computer, and select "Properties"

    At the bottom of the window you will see if windows is activated or not.

    One other thing... Is the computer in question a Dell machine?
