hmm well i would ask him/her were they updating from windowsupdate site, or did they download the update/s first.

And if it was on the windowsupdate site, what was the error code that came up. (If any).

from the site it just said .............failed......and apparently they had the update system set to autoupdate and tried to install from the little yellow 'shield' and that failed too..............oh well I told em to restore back to a time when it DID work..........aint heard back so maybe they got successful.........

Are they installing the updates as a user with non-administrator priviledges? If so that will causes those errors
