Window Update, Display Drivers, and more! Joy...

by BlazeCyndaquil / January 14, 2010 12:57 PM PST

I have been having problems recently.
First of all Windows Update:
It started a couple days ago. Windows Update had been failing to properly configure updates. Well, I just tried getting updates and looked at the optional updates. There was an update for my video card. The details were as follows:
Intel Corporation - Display - Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family

Installation date: ‎1/‎11/‎2010 11:54 PM

Installation status: Failed

Error details: Code 80070103

Update type: Recommended

Intel Corporation Display software update released in June, 2008
It is an old update too... Anyway, my 39 other updates that couldn't install before, just magically installed correctly. While somehow this one didn't. Today, I tried to open Windows Movie Maker and it said that my video driver wasn't good enough. So I decided to check the device manager, and manually install the driver. So I went to Intel's website and found the update. Near the end of the installation I got an unknown error. When I went back to the device manager it was gone, making it even harder to access.

Now for the other problem with Windows Update: So every night, my computer does the installation process. You know saying configuring updates, 2 of 3, 3 of 3 and such, but doesn't give a percent. When I login, my computer asks to run "winupdate.exe.exe", even though Windows Update was already open on the taskbar. And it had an unknown signature and all of that. Could it be a virus (I know winupdate.exe can be a virus)?

Help. Please. I do not see any harm right now other than that I won't be able to edit videos (unless I do it online), but I would still like to know what is up and get it all fixed.

(Note the error number in my intel driver update)
