Updates was installed: 9/5/16 at 7:30pm on my window 7 computer but it fail why?


It is normal for the updates to fail on windows update. Just let it do its thing on its own. It will retry to install them and may fail again. This is normal now if it tries over and over to install the same update and it fails then you most likely have software that is conflicting with the install. Either way it will eventually either install the update or stop trying. As it will see that it is in fact a conflict and move on. Don't be alarmed by this just let it go.

search for updates manually. especially for installer 3.1 install it and restart your computer. Check Services and make sure windows automatic update service is set to automatic and started. Check time and Date and download the latest version of internet explorer from microsoft site. Install it and it will automatically update many root certificates for your windows. Set the security setting of internet explorer to default level and finally try to use update application of windows. It should work.

Dear SherriJ:

Some time you might get this issues with the updates if they doesn't install properly or the computer turns off while instaiing updates.

However you can select last known good configuration of restore you computer to earlier time.

I would recommend you to keep the automatic updates on that will help you keep your computer in a good state.
