    Hi all
    My recent auto update installed 11 of 13 updates KB959426 & KB956572 failed
    with 0x8007074F on my Toshiba laptop. All 13 updates were installed perfectly
    well on my desktop running same versions of software.

    What do I do now

    Many thanks in anticipation

  2. Are you sure the error wasn't 0x80070*5*4F??

  3. <cmd_output OS="XPsp3">
    E:\>set /a c = 0x74F
    E:\>net helpmsg %c%
    1871 is not a valid Windows network message number.

    More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3871.

    Even when you do have a correct error code which maps to an error message
    in your OS you will undoubtedly need to see its context (or the context of its
    decimal equivalent) in your logs to understand the clue it gives.

    Good luck
