Computer trying to install same updated over and over...

I have a HP Pavilion dv6-1375dx Entertainment PC

Running Windows 7

My computer keeps trying to install the service patches below.  The patches have been installed on several dates, sometimes the status is "Failed" sometimes it "Successful".  When I check the installation history for updates for the first one, it has successfully installed 17 times and failed 9.   That is not the only item is has installed or tried to install several times.  And when it tries to install it takes over 12 hours to do so.  I logoff at night about 10pm and leave the computer installing, when I get up in the morning it is still installing, when I get home from work it has completed the process.  Sometimes it was successful and other times it was not. 

The last time both of these updates ran, they "Failed".  Can someone please help.  This has been happening since June, but I have not been able to take the computer to the shop because I use it for work.

Hi,

 

I don't know why it does that. Do you use "Auto Updates" ?

Hi,

 

Please look at it to see and you may need to turn off 1 or 2 options such as other Microsoft products.

Thanks everyone for the help.  I kept looking around and I found a similar issue when I googled mine.

I had to uninstall the updates, go to microsoft and manually download and re-install the updates and that worked.

 

I did the same thing for both updates, and it seems like my issue has finally been resolved.

 

Thanks again!!!
