    Whoops, sorry for taking a really long time to reply.
    A friend of mine suggested to reinstall windows, which I did.
    The issue is now solved.
    Sorry for wasting all of your time, but thanks for the help you gave

    Windows 8 Pro

    I've been trying to install the following updates for several weeks. My objective is to download and install the free Windows 8.1 update on my Windows 8 Pro x64 system, on a Compaq CQ-4010 desktop. Windows 8.1 failed because (I'm guessing) the updates below won't install. I've tried to install each of them singly, several multiple times, with my anti-virus (ASC 6 inactivated, and Rapport uninstalled). I've also deleted the Software Distribution/Download/ files. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
