I keep getting windows updates saying that updates are ready to install. The problem is that SP3 has failed to install twice but every time I boot-up it try's again. I have turned off the automatic updates but they seem to turn their self's on back again on restart.
click here towards the bottom of this page there is a list of the most likely failure errors for SP3 not installing and a link to the Microsoft page detailing their solution. A long read but probably worth it.
