Windows Fails To Update KB2515325 and KB2522422 and KB2492386 and KB982018 | Fix It

Each time I try to install: KB2515325, KB2522422, KB2492386, KB982018, Windows Update says it failed to install them. 2 other Updates KB2310138 and KB2467173 installed Successfully. But the mentioned three failed.

Installing the upgrade manually will work for many cases, but it is just a workaround. It wont solve the problem, so it could come up again later with another upgrade.

Solution:

  • Download them and try to install them manually
  • Disable all security software's and try again
  • run chkdsk /r /f and sfc /scannow
  • Download and install the System Update Readiness tool: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821
  • Reset Windows Update Components

I installed them 1 by 1 in the above order and it worked. The first one is the only one that didn't make me reboot. I've found that KB982018 might be the culprit and you can install the other 3 in one try, then do KB982018 last.

Installing the upgrade manually will work for many cases, but it is just a workaround. It wont solve the problem, so it could come up again later with another upgrade. The FIX is to reset Windows Update. It is likely not a problem with Windows Update itself. More likely it's that something became corrupted with an earlier update.

The easiest way to do the reset is to run this little batch file that someone else has written. Just copy this address into your browser, download it to your desktop, and run it as Administrator.

If this does not solve your problem, perform a repair install of your OS.
