    Hello,

    I have a server 2008r2 Standard 64Bit addition and for some reason I’m having trouble with Microsoft Updates. The updates have been working and I have many on the server. This last one, KB2347290 will not install. It just sits there and runs with 0%installed for an hour if I let it. I tried installing the update by itself as an executable and I get the same thing. I have tried restarting the server and then running the update, nothing. I tried to run a FixIt but the one recommended for Microsoft didn’t mesh with my operating system (go figure). The service that is running on this server is Sql 2008R2. I looked in Event logs and the only thing I have found so far is a Windows Modules Installer error indicating that it had stop. The next entry is that it has restarted. I believe that this only stops when I try to run the updates. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Maybe there is an installer running in the background that is causing your updates to fail. Do and alt+ctrl+del and see if there is an msiexec or any other installer runnging in the background.
