    Windows Update won't install

    Windows Update won't let me install the updates that I already downloaded.

    How, what error do you get ? Are you admin on the machine ? What Windows ? Join The Best Music Social Network Online. Music downloads, promotions, forums, profile, games etc...

    Darn, I guess you'll just have to change operating systems

    I don't know if this will help but I have Win 98SE and the file you mention (msscript.ocx) is not installed on my machine according to Start/ Find and I am fully up-dated. That would suggest that it is not a missing System file. I can only suggest that you try and repair IE by going to Start/ Programs/ Accessories/ System Tools/ System Information/ Tools and run the first program in the drop down box, i.e. the Internet Explorer Repair Tool.
    This worked for work collegue on 98SE

    or you could try :

    Windows bought and paid for?

    Apparently you have not read this:

    I am running windows 2000 and i get this error "Failed Updates
    For help installing an update successfully, see the solution under each problem description."

    Problem: "A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being downloaded or installed
    Solution: To fix the problem, try installing the updates again. "

    here is a screen shot:

    log file says: WU client failed installing updates with error 0x80240020

    Your login may not have local admin authority, so the updates would not install. If you account does have local admin authority, you may want to check that your anti-virus real-time service is not running during the installation.

    Chances are it is something simple and silly like that.
