    Botched Windows 7 update giving me problems

    Im running Windows 7 on my laptop, with updates being installed by me, but downloaded automatically. A few days ago i installed; ''Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB974431)'' and restarted my laptop. It installed the update upon restart, but failed, so restarted and reverted Windows to before it was installed.


    The problem is that everytime i turn my laptop on it trys to re install agai, failing, reverting then restarting. A process which takes a good 20mins.


    Is there anyway to get out of this cycle, or get the update without it butchering itself upon installation?


    cheers guys

    Once you finally get in, download the update manually and apply it yourself. That should fix it.
