    Windows Update Failure

    I'm using the Asus Eee Slate EP121. This happened more than once that Windows prompted me to install an update, then fails. Sometimes the update prompt disappears even though it was not installed. Today it prompted me to install an update called "Qualcomm Atheros Communications driver update for Bluetooth Module" and failed.

    Error code 80070103.

    Can someone help me?

    Install the driver manually from here:

    ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????)

    You're welcome.
