Question about HP Pavilion N5415 Notebook
I had been having this same issue on my Windows Vista Ultimate - 64-bit computer at home. The HP Update process would run and display about three or four failed installations. I ended up logging onto HP's website and searching for HP Update, and came across a version update - 4.0.12.
I downloaded the 4.0.12 version, installed it and re-ran the updates. Everything worked as planned.
While I didn't read anything specific on HP's site, I'm guessing the failed installs has something to do with the HP Update client itself, and version 4.0.12 fixes those problems.
You can get the 4.0.12 versions here: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software10/COL25541/pv-65606-1/sp40845.exe
If you don't trust the direct link, here's the support article from HP: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=pv-65606-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3461494

You need to run the HP update as an administrator. You can set the short cut to do this...
Start -> Programs -> HP -> HP Update -> right click -> properties -> compatibiltiy tab
Then the check box down near the bottom. I guess you can also do this for all users (press the "Show settings for all users")
Not tried it automatically yet, but if you run the short cut the updates install successfully. You may need to go find the actual executable and do the above for the automatic update to run in admin?

Running as administrator fixed it for me.
