    Windows automatic updates are being downloaded but are not being installed?
    Anyone have any ideas as to why?

    TIA

    There's a setting somewhere that let's you download and install later.
    (The control panel/Automatic Update/"Big Schpeel from MS about 'AU' so that
    you'll start paying for it by subscription service when they swith over"

    I never used the 'automatic updates' feature. I always did it 'mAnuAlLy' by
    going to the MS website

    Microsoft provides free technical support for problems involving
    Windows Update.

    Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and click on the "Get Help
    and Support" link in the left side column. You will get several
    options for accessing support. I have found the email submissions get
    acted on quite quickly and the responses are usually good.

    Good luck
