    Hi all
    My win7 system will not install updates. I have tried to follow leads from the web but to no avail. I have a long list of "failed installs". Any advice appreciated.

    There may be other updates currently installing.
    You may not have a legitimate version of Windows. Do you? Click Start > Right click "Computer" > Scroll Down. Is Windows Activated?
    Are there any error codes you receive when it tells you there are "failed installs"?

    This is a genuine Win7, there are no others waiting, and it has been a pain for a few weeks now.

    Does the update attempt provide you with an error code?
