Specs: Windows Server 2003
I am running Windows server 2003 for a small office. Not being a true IT mananger, it took me a while to notice that Windows updates were failing. I have a very long list of upates (June 11 to July 20 2009) that failed to install. I figured out the incompatibility with an old version of System Mechanic was causing the problem and updates now work.

My question is do I know use Windows Catalog to download and installed all the fail updates or are the new ones all cumulative? I know I can forget the IE7 ones as I upgrated to IE8. Many have cumulative in the name so I guess I am fine there. But what about "Rollup for ActiveX...", "Windows Malicious Software Removal tool..." and all the "Security Updates for Windows....". Are they included in the new upgrades or should I spend the hours to download and install all the old ones? Help??

Go to the Windows Update site, run the scan and download and install what ever updates are listed from the WU website.

Thank you for the quick reply Ryan!

So, if I understand correctly. If the normal "check for updates" process does not find any required (or optional) updates, then I am good to go?

Get rid of System Mechanic - you don't need it.
