I have been unable to install updates for windows 7 for the last 3 months - both automatically and manually. Is this a common problem ? help please

It might help if you give a little more information about what happens when you try to update

I needed it for my Desktop SP1. Laptop was fine.

It took a while and just reported "Successful" or "Complete", I forget, but then SP1 installed fine too.
