I keep getting windows update message and the update starts,it's gets to about 25% and no further.If I click on stop installation nothing happens,it just keeps trying to install.This has been going on for a few days now and I can cancel it but a couple of days later it starts again automatically.The updates are windows live essentials 2011 (KB2434419),does anyone else have this problem and what can I do to stop it.

Check to see if that update is already installed - could be one reason for the error.

Thanks for your reply,no the update isn't already installed.

Try this :-

Go to Control Panel - Windows Updates - View Update History - See Installed Updates - look for any previous Windows Live Essential updates and "Uninstall" - this should allow the installation of the latest update KB2434419
