    Thumbs down Updates Failing Help

    We are using an HP ML350 G6 with Server 2008 R2 for the admin network at our school.
    The server has WSUS installed and has been working a treat for years.

    Recently, I have noticed that the admin server seems to be struggling to install updates for its self.
    WSUS continues to run well. The server has recently been getting stuck on updates when rebooting late at night.
    It happened again this morning and meant that the entire admin department were unable to log on or do any work.

    I had to pull the plug on the server, reboot to safe mode where it rolled back the failed driver and then rebooted in normal mode.

    I have logged into it and it has the follow depressing list of failed updates:
    ScreenHunter_02 Nov. 12 10.20.jpg
    The majority of these failed updates appear to be for IE versions.

    If I go to Windows Update, this is the list of updates waiting to go on:
    ScreenHunter_01 Nov. 12 10.19.jpg

    I have been onto application logs for Event Viewer and identified the two following as the updates which failed today:
    ScreenHunter_03 Nov. 12 10.38.jpg
    ScreenHunter_04 Nov. 12 10.38.jpg

    I presume these were the two which failed when I went into safe mode? The server was bounced at around 8pm last night 11/11/13

    Has this happened to anyone else and have you managed to overcome this?
    My problem is the admin systems are used all day every day. I can only reboot remotely in the evenings and because the server keeps getting stuck on boot up trying to install updates, I can't remotely sort anything out and need to come and pull the plug.

    There will be (a lot) more details in the C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log, but I have seen that 0x80070643 error code before, so I'm going to go with a hunch and suggest something right away. Try the steps in this article Troubleshooting a Failed Microsoft Security Essentials Install - Error Code 0x80070643 - TechNet Blogs - specifically, check the listed registry locations.
