most updates FAILED since 8-8-08
I know, I know...how did I not notice before now...well...I didn't. A few
updates have slipped through since then...oddly enough, the ones everyone on
here is complaining wouldn't install. I now have 39 updates pending
installation. I've tried backup and restoring, nada. I've tried
uninstalling the updates that DID install on 8-8...nada...just went from 36
pending updates to 39.

The only other thing I'm reading is an option is to format my hard drive.
NOOOOOO- please help?

Instead of trying for all the remaining updates
at one shot, try installing a few (3 max) at a time.

Your computer should not be connected to the internet or any networks in its
current state!

Backup your personal data, then do a format & clean install of Windows.
Please note that a Repair Install (AKA in-place upgrade) will NOT fix this!

After the clean install, you'll have the equivalent of a "new computer" so
take care of everything on the following page before otherwise connecting
the machine to the internet or a network and before using a USB key that
isn't brand-new or hasn't been freshly formatted:
