Answer

Do you get any errors related to updates?

1. Open Windows Update by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Update.
2. In the left pane, click View update history.
3. Find an update for Windows that has failed to install, and then double-click the update to view more information.
Updates that have failed to install will display Failed under Status, next to the update name.
4. In the Windows Update dialog box, next to Error details, review the error code for the failed update.
5. Either follow the links in the Windows Update dialog box under More Information or Help and Support to try to fix the problem, and then try installing updates again by using Windows Update in Control Panel or post the error codes so we can help further.
