I can't install windows updates

By Jennzie

  1. I just installed windows today on a new computer and started updating everything. I installed Service Pack 3 and continued installing a few more updates. Now when the auto update and it downloads the updates, when it tries to install them it always fails. I tried doing it on the website and auto update tool. Neither way will work.

    I fixed it. I uninstalled service pack 3 then reinstalled it and all the updates worked thereafter. Odd.
