  2. Are you declining a restart? If so, decline the update, some modules which
    are needed to complete the update would remain to be copied into place
    on your next reboot.

    Asked here. Answered here. Doesn't your web interface have
    a notification feature anyway? <eg>

    BTW if you have a link to the whole previous discussion please post it.
    Neither Google Groups nor the MS Communities web interface to newsgroups seem to have it.

    In any case, did you see my previous reply in this thread?

    If you're going to post Me too! requests for help at least
    have the courtesy to respond as if you have read and tried
    the existing help in them.

    Apparently I replied to the other Me too! in his own thread
    and cross-posted it to SQL Setup, which is where this should go too.

    (WU NG Alt-7 search for

    Cross-posting to SQL setup where you may find more informed help.
    Also, if you use its equivalent web forum instead of the MS Communities
    interface you may get better results when searching. <eg>

    So, in spite of your vague problem symptom description, see if this
    gives you some clues about how to try diagnosing it

    (Search on SQL Setup forum for
    "windowsupdate" install (MSFT OR MVP)

    Good luck
