    Failed updates (xphome sp2)

    Hi
    I have been trying to download and install the latest MS updates at home but they all fail to install. Have checked that the firewall is not blocking.

    Anyone any clues?
    cheers

    How are you trying to "download and install the latest MS updates"?

    Automatic Update (AU)?
    Windows Update (WU)?
    Microsoft Update (MU)?
    MSFT Download Center (or per bulletin, which is more or less the same)?

    When you say "fail to install" one has to assume that they are already downloaded and ready for installation, thus is the FW not a problem. But it seems you are using AU.

    Do you get any messages? How do they fail? Have you tried to download them manually from the bulletin, I am assuming you are talking about the December batch including the added extra IE update.

    The Update servers are VERY busy. It over 2 hours for the IE7 update to be found and downloaded.

    Just go for the update and wait. Have dinner or a big cool one.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
