    I have 31 security updates that Microsoft Update fails to download. For a
    couple of months my problem was that MU failed to install Windows Genuine
    Advantage, but that problem has now been solved (I hope). I now have 31
    security updates to install but all attemptes to do so has faild. I have
    tried to turn of all antivirus and security programs but it doesn´t help.
    Could it help if I reinstalled the MU-program? And if so, were could i find
    that program?

  2. Kindly state which Windows this pc has & it's service pack level (as appropriate).

    You need to do some digging to get at the failure code & description.

    If you have Internet Explorer version 6:
    Place sites into Exceptions list (to get around Pop-up blocking):
    Internet Explorer > main menu /Tools/Popup Blocker>Pop-up Blocker settings

    In block titled "Address of Web site to allow" type in
    update.microsoft.com , then click Add.
    Repeat for windowsupdate.microsoft.com

    then press Close.

    Go back to Windows Update & just Review history.
    Click on the Red X where install failure is noted.

    Post back with exact wording.

    31 updates is too many to do in one pass. Find out what the "failure" was first.
