  1. hi there.

    One of the updates in Windows Update keeps failing. It says it's an important one too.

    I'm getting error code 80070643

    When I go to this
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/903772
    website to FAQ the problem, I get to method 2, stage 2.

    "2. Insert the Office 2003 CD in the CD drive. "

    I've got no idea what this disc is. Why does it assume I've got it??

    Not too sure but I would try turning off all running programs like Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and Firewalls and try to update again with Internet Explorer.

    with IE?
    as opposed to doing it through windows update?

    how would i go about that then?
