    Windows Update Error Code 8E5E03FA (MS Security Bulletin MS12-063)

    I have a Dell Studio XPS 9100 computer with Windows 7 Prof (SP1). Until yesterday, have not had any problems in downloading and installing Windows Updates. Yesterday, my computer was able to download the MS Security Bulletin MS12-063, Critical Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (2744842) without any problems. The install started out okay but after about one half the way through the install, an error message came up that the update was not installed and had the error code of 8E5E03FA. I did the retry a couple of times, but no luck. I then manually downloaded the update file and then tried the install, but got the same results.

    Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. I should note that I did accomplish a Google Search, but could not find any current resolutions. Thanks, Sam.

    This seems to have worked for a bunch of people over five years: 8E5E03FA fix.
