Windows Update woes

by

Ok I ran into an issue where Windows updates would simply not install. It’d download them and go through the process of installing but then would fail them all.
 
This is what I did to fix it:
 
Open a command prompt  :
  1. Click Start, Run and type in CMD.
  2. Type net stop wuauserv and hit return.
  3. Type regsvr32 %windir%\system32\wups2.dll and hit return
  4. It will then pop up a box – click OK.
  5. Go back to the DOS prompt and Type net start wuauserv.
That’s it. Go back to Microsoft’s update page and try again. It should work.
