Windows update fails to install the updates below. How do I fix this, I've installed the fix it application Microsoft recommends but it still fails. Any ideas how to fix this?

  • Update for Microsoft Outlook Social Connector 2010 (KB2553406) 32-Bit Edition
  • Update for Microsoft OneNote 2010 (KB2553290) 32-Bit Edition
  • Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB2553310) 32-Bit Edition
  • Windows Internet Explorer 9 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems
  • Update for Microsoft Outlook 2010 (KB2553248) 32-Bit Edition

I've also attached the windows update log if that helps. The machine is a Windows 7 and we run a windows 2008 SBS domain.

Don't see alog. Are there any specific errors related to the failed updates? Specific error codes? Have you tried a manual install? – Dave M Oct 2 '12 at 14:23
Reboot, Make sure you have all applications closed, and try updates again. – kobaltz Oct 2 '12 at 15:15
I just want people to tell Microsoft that they simply cannot provide a system that provides updates dependably. They simply cannot do it. I challenge them to do it. They will never be able to do it. This is something Windows users need to know. Microsoft has never provided a dependable updating system or method. They are incapable of it. It profits them, because people end up having to buy a new computer. And since Microsoft pretty much dominates this entire field, Microsoft profits from having lousy products and systems. That is my opinion, and I wish Microsoft would somehow prove me wrong. B – user242881 Aug 2 '13 at 18:27

Install them one-at-a-time, starting with the oldest (lowest numbered). You've probably encountered a conflict between them that requires they be applied separately.
