Hmmm, somebody flagged your question as spam???

Anyway, are you running as administrator? Have you checked for malware?
Is your internet connection live? Those are a few places to check right off
the top of my head.

More information?

So, what happens? Which error codes are you seeing? When did they start failing?

My first step is usually to look at the update history and find the oldest failed update, on the principle that "that's where the trouble started". You need to look carefully, because an update that failed one day will often succeed the next - sometimes they succeed after three or four attempts. When you've identified the oldest one look at the error code and see if you can get to the bottom of that one first.

at work i had this happen to a few pcs if you put in the windows disk into your system you can do an inplace upgrade and that seems to fix the update issue, but if you can i would just scub it.
