  1. My automatic updates is on and it asks me "new updates are ready for your computer download and install now?" and i click it and they begin to download. The downloading of the files in fine but i am having huge problems installing these updates and everyone once in a while it tells me there is a problem with my registry and that they cannot be installed but i don't no what that means . . . and then after the installation fails the bubble comes up again asking if i want to download and install these updates . . . help?

    just to add to this one of the installers is "Windows Genuine Installer" and it will attempt to install but then fails and states that "The Registry Could Not Be Added . . . Windows has been partially updated and may not be working properly..."
