    Work around for updates failing...

    Some work arounds for failing updates in Windows 7, as I have not tried in Windows 8 are listed below:
    1. Use Windows Update to select individual updates until the update that is the failing update is found.
    2. Sometimes updates can be saved instead of being installed. These save able updates can be found by searching After saving the update, execute it.
