    Windows update KB3003057 fails reverting changes

    I have tried several times to install this update and keep having the same problem. It installs ok reboots and gets to 88% then I get the message reverting changes reboots and everything is fine but no update. I downloaded and installed manually same thing. No error messages. I use firefox should I be concerned about IE updates? Windows 7 32 bit on a macbook 2007. Thanks Jeff

    Try running the update as an Administrator. I've had to do this in the past for Win7 (currently my OS is Win8). It usually installed when I did this.

    I have my Windows Updates set to ask which ones I want to download and install. What directory would the updates be stored in, so that one can right-click/run as administrator on each update?

    Not sure usually I download and install directly from the windows update screen. I manually downloaded this one and its in my download folder. It's a msu file and don't have the option of installing as administrator.
