Either repost the correct errors or, download and *save*:
AU Check (v78)
Once the download completes close all open programs and browsers.
***Temporarily disable *ALL* installed security software ...
antivirus/anti-malware/spyware/3rd party firewalls, etc.
Consult the User Guides of said security software to learn how to stop
all processes and services of same. *Enable* the native Windows firewall

download and install required software components needed for updating***
Now run au_check_v78_codeplex.exe and allow it some time to complete
Try to update the system with the sec software still disabled and the
Windows firewall enabled.
Did it ? If yes, then now you know what caused the updating issue.
Configure the installed sec sofware to scan the system according to MS'
Virus scanning recommendations for computers that are running Windows
Server 2003, Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Vista
*** Reenable the installed sec software now ***
