    upon reviewing my update history i noted that several updates were listed as
    failed.
    however they are listed as installed in the add or remove programs window
    accessed via the control panel. Are they installed or not ?

    Hi there

    Easy to find out: click remove and cancel if it wants to remove: if so it is
    installed;)

    Best regards,

    i have solved my problem by downloading a small program called belarc
    advisor which lists system imformation including windows updates.i then cross
    refrenced the "failed updates with the list produced by belarc. i found that
    the failed updates had been installed. belarc advisor can be downloaded for
    free at www.belarc.com .my thanks for all feedback on this and other
    postings
