Hi,

\015\012you can download belarc advisor and that program will show yopu what you have
\015\012www.belarc.com
\015\012in that list will be your windows updates, which ones worked and which ones didnt. click on the file of the one that didnt and it should take you to the windows webpage where you can do an offline install of the update.
\015\012windows update in the system tray can be somewhat incoherent
\015\012it may be downloading and say that it isnt. Ive had several computers that do that same thing. someone should tell microsoft about that ..
