I do have to advice to try to find out what is causing your downloads to fail, because it is not wise to not update windows.

Windows Update

Microsoft Windows normally automatically updates your operating system and accessory components. While these system updates are useful, sometimes it can help to customize aspects of the update process. Microsoft Windows offers many customization options, including the delay and disabling of automatic updates.

Open the Microsoft Windows Update directory in the Control Panel. This directory controls the Windows Update settings. Click on "Let me choose my settings" in the Turn on automatic updating box. This will allow you to set different customization options for automatic updates. Set your Important updates settings to "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them" in order to be prompted in the future. When Windows needs to update, you will be prompted to select the update components you want to download and install and deselect the updates you want to disable. Hope this helps.

    1. Connect to the Internet and see (in English).
    2. Follow the directions in the Windows Update page to set up Windows Update and install the software updates.
    3. Be aware of the following tips when using Windows Updates:
      • Install all critical updates first to help keep your Internet connection secure.
      • If you are looking for drivers, they can be found as optional updates from the list of available updates.
      • Due to file sizes, number of updates, and download time, use Windows Update when the computer is not being used for other activities.
    For more detailed information about using Windows Update to install drivers and get updates for Windows software, see the HP Support document Updating Drivers and Software with Windows Update .
    NOTE: Another great way to quickly get updated drivers from Microsoft is to open Device Manager, right-click the name of the device, and select Update Driver Software . Updating a driver from Device Manager c01162470.gif
