    Difficult Installing Updates

    Everytime there are multiple updates thyere are always ones that fail to install but after several tries they usually install. But, the following one just keeps failing..
    Also, from the description I am totally clueless as to what it is.

    I have been trying for two days to get this update installed.......

    Security Update for

    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB2467175)
    Download size: 5.6 MB
    You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.
    Update type: Important
    A security issue has been identified leading to MFC application vulnerability in DLL planting due to MFC not specifying the full path to system/localization DLLs. You can protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

    I wonder if you downloaded the file and installed from your HD.

    No Ted, I haven't tried to d/l it from MS yet.

    I just don't understand why it wont install with normal updates...

    This happen s a lot... It seems almost every time I click to get updates some of them don't install and it takes several tries before it does..

    Hard to say what the problem might be. Have you tried to disable AV during the install? These apps do on occasion cause problems during installs. Otherwise, unsure what could be going on, sorry.

    The only AV I use is MSE and I closed Malwarebytes...

    I wonder if there is any similar cause behind your problem and the one I report in:

    http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...r-install-file

    My symptoms have included difficulties with some Windows updates, including the recent .net update, but the Visua C++ SP went in fine.
    Sometimes the process to apply an update first removes the previous version of whatever is being updated and that is where I have run into problems. If the update is trying to remove / uninstall something but can't I wonder what error message would it give us?
    You haven't told us what error code or message you receive. I get the rather meaningless 0000064A.

    I'm not getting any error code.
    Just a message that the update failed and the option to try again.

    In my case, running Windows Update under Win 7, under the message "Some updates were not installed", a few lines below, there is:
    "Error(s) found Code 66A Windows Update encountered an unknown error. Get help with this error." This is all just to the right of the red vertical bar.

    Don't you see something similar?

    You need to examine the Windows Update log file to see the details.

    To help others avoid the 10 - 15 minutes I spent researching what that means, the procedure is:

    1. Click Start, and then click Run.
    2. In the Open box, type windowsupdate.log, and then click OK.

    The code embedded deep in the (verbose) log tells me my problem is different from the Banyarola's, so I now depart this discussion.

    A Google search on 80070005 produced this discussion, which your problem:
