This is a new computer running Win 7 Professional.\n\nWindows Update failed on 34 important updates and I think I know the\nreason why.\n\nI was downloading a bunch of updates and had to disconnect, I believe,\nwhen the updates were being installed. I was getting late for work and\nnot knowing the remaining time to install, I stopped the\nupdates/installation.\n\nI have a series of questions and hope someone can help me with the\nanswers.\n\nI have downloaded and installed successfully the SP1 for Win\nProfessional (KB976932). Does any updates prior to the SP1's date need\nnot be installed?\n\nIn addition to the 34 important updates Windows Update shows that 11\nRecommended updates failed to install. However, in the Add/Remove of\nControl Panel, it shows that 9 of these 11 Recommended have been\ninstalled. Which is right, Windows Update or the Add/Remove program?\n\nFinally, is there a way to install the remaining upgrades that have\nfailed through Windows Update? If not do I have to download these\nupdates to my computer and install them manually. What is the site to\ndownload these Updates?\n\nThank you all for your help?
