Did you find a solution?

Hi Edward,

Were you able to find a solution by doing an internet search? Will you share what Windows Update you are trying to install?

re:windows update

Cassandra i finally got an answer from microsoft
om the problem and steps to fix it.What i found online did not correct it.I just went to my installed updates
and it shows a BUNCH of failed updates.I had a computer
repair look at it he said that microsoft actually takes
control of the computer on their end and supposedly fixes it.
Why i see the failed updates is making me wonder.if they fixed anything.Please let me know.
