Failed Updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Genuine Advantage installed and went on-line to check for new updates via the Windows Update selection.  The following list of security updates were listed as needed (express): KB905474, KB917734, KB914389, KB917344, KB918439, KB911280, KB916281, KB917953, KB890830 and a couple of Office XP updates.  When I told the system to install the updates they all came up as failure to install. 

    The update log indicated that I had had a failure in installing Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474) but no indication what the problem was.  I followed one of your postings on this forum to directly download and install WGA. It seemed to work with no errors but after rebooting and attempting to install the other modules I get complete failure again (except KB905474 not listed anymore).  Any ideas?
