Try updating them manually then pick one at a time to download.Maybe just the 1 bad one stopping the rest.

Just this minute tried to instal singly. No good--Got it set to download automatically then I instal manually.

Prior to this event I had trouble deleting a program and now I find that I cannot install Microsoft anti virus and other various software, leading me to think that this is a windows installer issue---can anything be done with this installer--it is switched on to manual in services.

You could try the registry solution on ClickHereVista windows installer issue

Normally a virus will stop you from downloading security programs.

Maybe give this a run to see if it finds any problems.It works very fast.


Or try this installer.

There appears to be a problem with one of this weeks updates, namely KB2676562 which will not install correctly and is stopping some of the others as well. If you untick this particular one you might find the rest will install OK.

I have no idea what the problem is as it installed OK on one of my machines but not my laptop.

Condom--funnily enough that download went in ok?--Iam trying to system restore to an earlier date but I only have the option to go back a few days----according to what I read I should be given the option of a calender to pick a date but this doesnt come up
