Try and do only a few at a time?

Did the updates timeout or did you cancel it?

It says all those updates failed so how do I re-configure them? They show up in my update history but I'm not seeing a "retry" option or anything

Hmmmm just try and do like 10 or so at a time.

Sometimes Windows freaks out if you try and do like 100 updates as once.

OK...but again HOW do I get those failed 100 updates to show up again so I can do them at 10 at a time.

Try Googling Windows Update Troubleshooter and look for the official MS site.

I don't know if you're working with Windows 7 or 8, but if it's 7, and you don't already have service pack 1, go download the standalone installer for SP1, install that, then re-run Windows Update and go from there.

Oh they aren't actually showing up again? Then I would do what Shub suggested.

OK I got them to show again. So 10-15 at a time should work?

Do I have to restart my computer after each set of 10-15?
