    The following 6 little buggers have failed repeatedly. I take solace in
    knowing other are in the same boat-misery does indeed love company-but
    wonder, aside from paying Microsoft $ to fix, what can we do? I have read
    that it is their policy not to charge for support when problems are related
    to Updates. Has anyone out there resolved this issue without paying big $?

    Here are the ones I have that failed:

    KB article numbers mean nothing to me and I generally have to look them up so
    I only looked up a couple (time permitted) and noted that one relates to
    Office Excel 2003 and another to a Viewer for Office.

    For the Viewer update/s, they require the original source which was most
    likely deleted after the successful install of the viewer, Suggest you remove
    the Viewer and download the latest one.

    As for the others, in a majority of cases for Office updates they require
    the source CD, if not then it is recommended that you download the full files
    (if the CD is not available).

    If I'm totally on the wrong track, perhaps you could provide more details as
    to the error codes etc (located in the windowsupdate.log) or any error
    messages when the installation fails.

    "ghosted" installation. yeah, i didn't run sysprep but i don't care :p
