Windows 7 updates failing

I am running windows 7 and since the 15 August i now have a long list of updates that failed to install.  The latest  are KB2732500, KB2729094, KB2732487, kb2647753, kb2722913, kb2705219, kb2731847.  I have tried the FixIT program but it made no difference.  What is the solution?

2. Do you receive any error message?
3. Which fix it did you try?
