Don't force this.

If Windows Update doesn't offer it, don't force it. The reasons are too many for me to list here but it's not offered when it might tank the machine.

That is not the message I usually see in the error message. You appear to have rewritten it. But here's what to do next. Uninstall Zone Alarm then try again. If it fails type just the error message at google.com and here.

Typos, etc.

In reply to: ok but

Sorry but with the continued typos I can never be sure about what you have. Instead of clicking the "Submit post" button click the "Preview post" so you can fix your posts before they show up.

In reply to: ok

What helps are posts without the typographic errors. Also the "error message" in quotes. If you can keep trying then I will too.
