Hi Kate - What anti-virus are you running? Try disabling your anti-virus and reinstalling the updates. You may have to go to the Windows update page and re-download. Just go to Start>programs and scroll up and Windows update should be there. Let me know about your Anti-virus and what SP you have installed. If this solves your install problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. I won't be done with you yet. I'll let you know what to do from now on. If it didn't solve your problem please DON'T RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know the answers to my questions and we'll get you fixed up. Thanks.

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.

I am continuing to recieve Windows update error 9C48 and I am unable to fix error

  1. Uninstall IE9, if you already have it installed, and restart the computer.
  2. Download the installer.
  3. Disconnect from the internet. This is important because the installer attempts to download the latest, bad binaries from Windows Update.
  4. Let the install finish, and restart.
  5. Reconnect to the internet and check Windows Update. If all went well, you should be able to see the Cumulative Update for IE9, instead of IE9 itself.
