Answer
Answer
What's your sound card (and do you happen to know what driver it is)?  Uninstall the drivers from it, and I think you can complete the KB install.  It looks like your sound card driver failed to give write permission to the system, and we're failing out trying to update it (we updated in the base sound card driver in KB2756872, which is used by most other sound drivers).
