    I have been working on the system for a few days now. Every time I run the Windows Update it comes back saying that the updates could not be installed. Although, when I go to c:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution I am able to install the updates manually. I have tried erasing the windows update files and letting it reinstall. But that seems to do nothing. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you.

    The update seems to fail when it say "Initializing Installation..." It doesn't display any error messages, it just say Unable to install the updates.
