helo peeps.... am having a rather annoying problem. nothing that can't be sorted by formating my hard disk-bt i dnt want to have to transfer over 10gb of files!!! the problem is whenever i try to install microsoft updates it does not allow me to. it shows the various avaliable updates but when it comes to installing it does not allow me to. it says that: Failed Updates For help installing an update successfully, see the solution under each problem description. Problem: A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being downloaded or installed Solution: To fix the problem, try installing the updates again. If that doesn't work, use the Troubleshooter to try solve the problem The update history does not show the failed updates. it doesnot record it at all. I have nod32, outpost pro, system safety monitor, windows defender and spyware blaster running. I tried disabling outpost, win defender n SSM bt that didn't change nothing. Anyone got an idea as to what did that? could it be i disabled some essential services? also i recently installed tuneutilities. could i have messed up with something?
