    Hey, that is a great idea! Should we suggest it to microsoft :-)

    Actually I'm amazed they don't have more problems with all the different systems, OSs and setups.

    I found one fix on their site listed for windows 8 and server, downloaded it and was informed it wasn't for my system.

    Windows 8


    Good news at last people.
    Day 1
    Following Jimbo45 post I did a clean install, see tutorial for great step-by-step instructions. Actually I did a Refresh as according to Tutorial it is quicker. I then installed Avast Internet Security and started to set-up users, layouts, programmes etc. I also set Windows Update to notify me before installation. Duly informed several updates ready. Tried installing and usual cancelled, failed etc. Tried trouble shooting Windows Updates, it made some changes but updates did not work.
    Day 2
    Jimbo45 also mentioned 3rd party anti-virus so I switched off Avast and tried again; surprise another failure. Tried trouble shooting Windows Updates again, made some changes and the holy grail was at last achieved! The updates downloaded and installed after a restart.
    Summary
    1. Consider a clean install or Refresh
    2. Turn off any 3rd party anti-virus
    3. Run Troubleshoot Windows Update
    4. Manually select required update(s)
    5. If you have a god then pray to him or her

    Good luck everybody
