Greetings,

I can't seem to update Windows 7 on my home machine. Everytime I try, I get a "failed to install" after at the point where I reboot.

I have tried all three of these methods, and nothing works.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Have you tried to update through Internet Explorer/Tools/Windows Update?

Yes, and it just does the same thing. Anyone know where I can find an error log to point out which update is causing these problems?

You may have a virus that is stopping you from updating windows.

Download these apps and then go into safe mode with networking to run them:

Just double click app and follow prompts.

Just double click app and follow prompts.

Choose free copy, download, install, update and run.

All apps must be run in Safemode with Networking to get best results.
