Re: Updates are downloaded but fail to install
This worked builtifuly: (taken from: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144 )

Method 1: Register the Wups2.dll file in Windows (I didnt need to try the
method 2)
To register the Wups2.dll file in Windows, follow these steps:

2. Register the Wups2.dll file. To do this, follow these steps:a. At the

type the following command, and then press ENTER:
regsvr32 %windir%\syswow64\wups2.dll
(I didnt use this one)

b. Click OK on each verification message that you receive.

3. Start the Automatic Updates service. To do this, type the following
command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
net start wuauserv

Than I went to the Windows Update Web Site and installed all 77 updates
