Microsoft has released an Important update to the Windows Update function (Windows Update Agent 7.6.7600.256) because users have been experiencing update issues. Some users experience failed installation with error code 80070057 or 8007041B. Microsoft has provided a "Fix it" tool that can be directly downloaded here for those cases that won't automatically apply the update and the Knowledge Base article located here. Have you been experiencing this issue? Please let us know!

On my Windows 7 system, "View update history" shows that it was installed automatically on 6/24. However, the most recent "Updates were installed" date is listed as 6/12. It appears that updates to Windows Update do not count as updates.
