    Hi guys

    There seems to be a problem with my windows update. It downloads the necessary updates with no problem but as soon as it start to install it, it gives me a failed message. No error codes nothing, just failed. Did anyone experience this and know what the solution could be? :confused:

    (See the attached image for the error.)

    PS: It's not only the case with SP3 it happened even before SP3 was released.

    Thanks
