I notice that this facility is not available on Home Premium 7, so us lower echelons can't get it!

I had the same problem. In the end, I accessed Windows Updates via the start menu and installed them one at a time. That did the trick. I suggest you do the other three first and leave the troublesome one to last.

PS - this did not involve any need for admin access

Thank you all for responding,and i found that Quiz man suggestion worked ,but i stopped short at installing Internet Explorer 9 as i have heard there are a few quirks with it,so i will install it later.
