This update didnt work for me (and the previous one in june) all other
updates have been successful. It doesnt give me a reason just sayings update
was unsucessfully installed.
Also not main problem but (im not sure when this started happening) when
auto update starts downloading files sometimes it starts with the little icon
in the system tray and then for no reason it dissapears and the download
appears to have stopped so i have to go an do it manually through the update
centre (i have set autoupdate to download and then ask me if i want to
install or not and theres nothing wrong with interenet connection).
Cheers for any help enlightening me on these.

Doesn’t actually install from WU, just runs, does what it has to do and then
disappears.
