windows update failed to install

a friend of mine has a windows update problem , he goes on the update site picks the updates and keeps getting failed to install. i have tried to type run , and go to the services.msc and looked at the automatic update bit and it is enabled,so i guess its not that. also ran cc cleaner, but still the same. also adware se 1.6, and microsoft antispyware, but still same message i have run out of ideas now apart from a clean install but did not want to do that for him really any more ideas welcome thanks

It might be that the computer is not restoring itself.
Try going to START. CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM. Click on SYSTEM RESTORE . is there a tick in the box, if there is remove it.
