Windows automatic update failed, why?

Question

When trying to install windows critical update q329441, which is downloaded automatically from the microsoft web site, i am receiving the message "update not installed". Sure enough, when i look at the installation history after attempting the install, it says "installation failed". I have tried this multiple times and always receive the sme msg. Since i have the automatic update feature turned on, i again receive msg to install the same update again, and again it fails. There are no other error messages of any kind. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks!!!!
