I have been trying to install the same 22 updates from Microsoft for the past week. All have ended in failure. Any one have this same problem? Is there a solution?

OK - which updates? Some updates need to be updated separately. For example, a security update issued yesterday may rely on an update issued last month to have already been applied. If having issues, try installing updates in batches of roughly a weeks worth and see if that helps.

Try to do the updates one at a time, until you find the particular one, or two, that will not install correctly. Some updates will not install becuase you already have a newer file or you do not really need it.

I have the same issue with 10 "important" updates. I tried one at a time, and still no success. I thgink Win 7 may be another Microflop.
