    I can't get Windows Updates to Install


    I've had to do a system reset. Now, I can't get my Windows updates to install. Can someone help me out here?

    Please provide more info. Is there some kind of error message or the green bar just keeps checking for updates?

    It says its installing when its not. I tried downloading the updates it from the internet, and it said it wasn't compatible with my PC. The updates are (KB2961908) without KB2919355, KB2990967, and KB2919355.

    Okay. I am back. I am sorry it took me a while to get back. I took a nap because I didn't get much rest last night because of working on this computer. Anyway, I got those updates installed.
