No I have Norton Internet Security installed and have no problem. Try typing the code of the update in google, if you see a microsoft site listed go there and see if you can download the required file and the install the update manually. Or search on this link

thanks for the reply

this is the update that fails ( windows security update KB893066)

ive tried the suggestions above ,but still no answer. the only thing i can hope is that this problem is microsoft related and not with my PC .

i even made a new account and tried installing it from there but it still fails when it reaches the end.
