I have been having problems installing 8 updates since early May 2012. I am getting the error code in the title line.

The updates are:

  • Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596672)
  • Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596792)
  • Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2596880)
  • Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2597162)
  • Security Update for Microsoft Office 2007 suites (KB2597969)
  • Security Update for Microsoft Office Excel 2007 (KB2597161)
  • Security Update for Microsoft Office Word 2007 (KB2596917)
  • Update for Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Junk Email Filter (KB2687267)

    I have run FixIt, but to no avail. I have also turned off services and rebooted and ran Windows Update and still got this error.

    Do I need to just skip these updates, or somehow troubleshoot this and fix it. If I need to fix it, I need help.

    Regards, and thanks.
